A factory with the capacity to produce 5,000 tonnes of glass per day is due to be built in the first quarter of 2010, in Luanda, by the Lee E. Nsumbo company, the company’s chief executive, Abílio Cabral said Thursday.

Speaking to Angolan news agency Angop, Abílio Cabral added that the factory unit, to be built in the Viana municipality, would produce clear, mirrored, bronze-mirrored, brown and, hammered glass.

The raw material for producing the glass, according to Cabral, will be acquired from China and Brazil.

“Angola has become a veritable work site, and thus it is important to have internal production of construction materials, including glass in order to reduce imports,” he said.

Cabral said that much of the glass sold in Angola was imported, which increased demand and made its acquisition more difficult and more costly.

Lee E. Nsumbo has been working in the Angolan market since 2005 and sells glass and aluminium doors and windows, which it acquires from China.
