, Stoelzle

Furnace rebuild at Stoelzle Częstochowa successfully started.

Production capacity will increase to 480 t/day

Three new production lines

Total invest of 45 million €

On 9 May the Stoelzle Glass Group’s Polish production site Stoelzle Częstochowa started to empty its flint furnace, which will be demolished and rebuilt, as well as enlarged within the next 2 and a half months. The new flint furnace will reach a daily capacity of 480 t and will allow the installation of three more efficient production lines. The construction work is scheduled to take 78 days only, including the installation of the three new production lines. This investment amounts to 45 million € in total.

The construction of the new furnace is the next stage in Stoelzle’s development strategy. The first one was the opening of the new Logistics Centre, which helps avoid complications in global supply chains and prepares for the implementation of the next stages of the sales and operational strategy. The next step was the launch of a new high-speed spray line in the decoration area. The furnace rebuild and modernization of the infrastructure associated with it, will be the third milestone.

“THIS INVESTMENT HAS BEEN A HUGE CHALLENGE FOR STOELZLE, ABOVE ALL, THE TIMING OF THE PROJECT, WHICH HAS BEEN PLANNED IN DETAIL OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS. BEING 140 T LARGER THAN THE OLD ONE, THE NEW FURNACE WILL ALLOW MORE EFFICIENT AND FASTER PRODUCTION LINES. THIS INVESTMENT WILL HELP INCREASE THE PRODUCT PORTFOLIO FOR CURRENT CUSTOMERS, AS WELL AS TO ACQUIRE NEW ONES AND MEET THEIR PURCHASE EXPECTATIONS EFFICIENTLY," SAYS ARTUR WOŁOSZYN, CEO STOELZLE CZĘSTOCHOWA.

In the area of packaging glass production, the Częstochowa glass furnace will be one of the largest in Europe and the largest in the entire Stoelzle Glass Group. The contractors for the project are mainly Polish, regional companies such as: TechGlass, Kobnext, Zremb, MAKO, Alpinet, and El-Logic, Tech-Met, and Forglass.
