Bystronic glass equips new ArcGlass Co. plant in the South of Riyadh

Officials of Bystronic glass officially handed over a new, fully equipped glass processing plant to the ArcGlass Co. on Nov. 22. ArcGlass is part of the Saudi-Arabian Al Harbi Holding enterprise.

Bystronic glass obtained the order to equip the plant in the South of Riyadh at the end of 2009. The result is an ultra-modern factory complete with a cutting and sorting system, fully automatic insulating glass line, handling systems, as well as lines for the production of laminated glass and tempered glass, according to a Dec. 15 Bystronic glass release.

According to the release, the plant marks the first installation of its kind where the system is directly connected to the furnace and insulating glass line with an expansion option for the sorting system to the other processes.

"The period between the conclusion of the contract, the start of construction and, finally, the handover of the turnkey production arose due to special conditions which occurred on location", said Richard Jakob, CEO of the Swiss-German Bystronic glass Group, in the release. "Establishing a unit for glass production in the desert cannot be compared to the installation of a similar system solution in Western Europe. The harsh desert environment with frequent sand storms and temperatures up to 50° Celsius along with additional training required for a team of multi-national employees with different cultural back grounds and their requirement to work with 21st century technologies results in finding solutions for new challenges that arose every day."
