Tittot Co., a Taiwan-based maker of crystal glass, has officially activated the world's largest lost-wax casting plant in Shanghai, China, in a bid to build an open platform between Taiwan and the international glass industry, according to company sources.

As one of the leading brands of crystal glass in the Greater China area, Tittot has invested over NT$200 million in building the plant, installing production equipment and training workers. Y. S. Wang, chief executive officer (CEO) of Tittot, said that the new plant is expected to boost its maximum annual production value of crystal glass to NT$1.35 billion.

He added that Tittot is scheduled to kick off the second stage of its construction plan to build an R&D center and art workshops in 2009 near the lost-wax casting plant as long as the plant runs at a capacity utilization rate of over 85%. Hopefully, the whole manufacturing base, occupying an area of 4.3 hectares totally in Shanghai`s Jiading Industrial Park, will drive up Tittot`s production value to NT$2.3 billion a year.

According to Tittot, some 100 glass kilns are installed in the lost-wax casting plant, helping the plant to cut delivery time by one third to achieve better production efficiency. Besides, with the plant operational, Tittot expects to improve its yield rate to 75% from current 65%.
