The NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Glass have announced plans to construct a new float glass plant in Jacarei, near São Paulo, Brazil. This manufacturing facility will be the fifth float line operated by Cebrace Cristal Plano Ltda, the joint venture between the NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Glass in Brazil. The project will also include the installation of a magnetron line to produce off-line coated glass.

The plant, which will have a daily output of 900 tons of flat glass to supply Brazil's construction market, is due to come on stream in the fourth quarter of 2011. This installation at the Jacarei site, which already has two float lines and one laminated glass line, can increase the site’s production by 60% and reportedly become the largest glass complex on the American continent.
