Glass Industry News


, Quartz Business Media Ltd

Many of the leading technology suppliers to the container and hollow glass industry are preparing to visit  Argentina. Companies involved in all sectors of the glassmaking process, from batch to furnaces, forming to annealing, inspection to palletising, have already signed up to exhibit at Glassman South America in Argentina. They will bring with them the latest know-how and ideas in container glassmaking, such as process control, safety and energy efficiency.

There are more than 45 companies that have signed up to exhibit so far from Europe, North and South America and include batch specialists Zippe and EME, refractories groups Parkinson-Spencer Refractories, RHI and Sefpro, furnace companies Sorg, FIC, Stara Glass, Glass Service,  Electroglass and Horn, conveyor chain groups Pennine Industrial and Ramsay Chain, ware handling company Sheppee, lubricants group Interglass, glass plant builders Henry F. Teichmann, forming specialists Heye International and Bottero, inspection groups Iris Inspection Machines and Tiama and palletising company MSK.

Why Argentina?

Argentina, and its surrounding region has renewed optimism. New President Maurico Macri has moved the country to one that is more free market-orientated compared to his predecessor, easing trade and currency controls.

Several glass facilities have expanded recently thanks in part to increased trade and the popularity of its wine and olives. Global glassmakers O-I and Verallia already have factories in Argentina, while domestic manufacturers such as Cattorini and Rigolleau are strongly represented. In addition, a new glassmaking site has opened recently in nearby Uruguay while neighbouring Chile has an established hollow glassmaking industry.
