In April 2011 the Client, a leading glass manufacturer with interests in both the Building and Automotive industries, announced investment plans for an off-line coating facility at it's St. Helens manufacturing unit.
The coating line, which will become operational in October 2012, will enable the company to provide customers with high-performance, low emissivity glazing products - complementing its well-established and widely-used thermal glass and solar control glass.
