SAG raises glass output to 7m sq m
Riyadh, October 11, 2011
Saudi American Glass (SAG), a component of Glass, a leading processor of architectural flat glass, has expanded its production capacity of energy-efficient glass to seven million sq m per annum.
SAG, a subsidiary of Dubai Investments, has also introduced Vitroglaze to the Saudi market, becoming the only provider of self-cleaning glass that uses nanotechnology to minimize maintenance costs.
As an organic progression of SAG’s growth, Glass has opened two new sales offices for SAG and its sister concern Emirates Glass in Riyadh and Jeddah.
Glass brands – Emirates Glass, Lumiglass, Saudi American Glass and Emirates Float Glass - offer a diverse range of spectrally selective tinted glass to domestic and international markets.
Ziad Yazbeck, senior vice-president, Sales and Marketing, Glass, said: “Since its inception in 1978, SAG has occupied a strategic position as the leading processor of architectural flat glass in Saudi Arabia.”
“We have achieved high output levels through the close integration of our units under Glass. The increase in production capacity by 400 per cent, which has led to an increase in output by 2.5 million sq m per annum, will allow us to cater to a larger market base.”
“Additionally, our new sales offices will deliver enhanced services to our customers and respond to their demand for high performance glass. The launch of Vitroglaze to the Saudi market further underscores our policy to support the environment and promote green development,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
