Float glass production is underway at Guardian Industries' newest facility in Tatui, Sao Paulo, Brazil, where the first ribbon of glass was pulled April 26. According to a company announcement, the Tatui plant will produce 800 tons per day and create 300 new jobs.

The new plant is Guardian's second one serving the Brazilian market. That plant in Porto Real, Brazil, has added a new coating machine, which enables it to manufacture of a variety of high-performance coated glass products. Guardian's recent investment in the country is more than $180 million.

"Since building our first float glass plant we have grown enough to support a second," said Guardian's managing director of Latin American operations, Mark LaCasse. "In fact, Guardian products have become very well known in Brazil thanks to our innovative customer outreach and marketing programs. This new plant will allow us to better meet the demand for our interior products, including Guardian mirror and Guardian DiamondGuard, our scratch-resistant glass, as well as our residential and commercial glass products."
