The new Furnace 73 is the result of a large investment made by Saint-Gobain Group for Verallia in Italy.
The new furnace, installed for the production of glass food containers, respects the environment thanks to its low Co2 emission levels and an intelligent use of energy.
The project was completed in May 2014, with the production of the furnace’s first container.
130 companies were involved in carrying out the project with an average of 200 people a day present at the work site.
Gazzo Veronese was chosen as the location for the new installation.
It was identified as a strategic position from which to best serve those Food & Beverage clients most devoted to export, a driving sector in all of Italy’s economy today.
The furnace, working at full capacity, will be able to produce around 1,000,000 containers a day on three lines, in order to better satisfy the needs of Verallia’s clients.
