By completing an extensive reconstruction of the current glass melting furnace in August-September of 2021, AS VALMIERAS STIKLA ŠĶIEDRA has built the new, advanced E-glass melting furnace No. 2.2. EUR 9 million was invested in this project to improve the production quality of the furnace and make it more efficient and climate neutral. The E-glass melting furnace will allow the company to ensure stable supply and delivery of the E-glass and its products to the global glass fibre market. The glass melting furnace is expected to reach full capacity by October this year, and gradual production will start as early as at the end of September.
