NSG Joint Venture to Build Float Line in Peru

May 26, 2011

Vidrios Lirquén, the joint venture between NSG Group, Saint-Gobain Glass and Inversiones Pathfinder, recently announced plans to build a new float line in Lima, Peru. The project will allow Lirquén to consolidate its leadership on the south Pacific coast of South America. The plant will have a daily output of 800 tons to supply Peru’s construction and automotive markets. It is due to come on stream during 2014.

The new facility will enable Vidrios Lirquén to support the growth of both the Peruvian and Chilean markets, and will be the second float line owned and operated by Vidrios Lirquén. Vidrios Lirquén has been established in Peru since 2006, with a distribution centre in Lima.
