EGL delights in Turkey

Emirates Glass LLC (EGL), one of the region´s leading processors of premium architectural flat glass products and a subsidiary of Glass LLC, wholly owned by Dubai Investments (DI), has received Dhs20m worth of orders in Turkey for projects that require the installation of self-cleaning glass.

Emirates Glass has inked a partnership with property investment and development major Feryapi on a portfolio of prestigious projects.

While work has already commenced on the I-Tower and East and West developments, the other projects that will utilise EGL´s self-cleaning glass include the HAMP, Gold Tower, Nida Tower, and Gursan. Emirates Glass aims to complete the delivery of glass for these projects by the last quarter of 2012.

Ziad Yazbeck, Senior Vice-President, Sales and Marketing, Glass LLC, said: "The construction market in the region is picking up pace once again, driving the demand for high quality glass. The trend is particularly evident in Turkey, which is validated by our win of key purchase orders for projects that are poised to set new industry benchmarks in the country.

“Continued optimism across the whole Middle East -from Algeria to Yemen - is once again driving demand from all aspects of the glass industry” says Derek Burston, exhibition director, Gulf Glass 2013 (3-5 September, 2013, Dubai). “At the recent glasstec exhibition in Germany, the mood of optimism surrounding the MENA region was tangible, and as such next year’s Gulf Glass event - sited one year from glasstec - will provide a truly global meeting place in what is an exciting, developing hotspot” he adds. “There is a real feeling that Dubai is a truly international meeting venue, with the added benefit of having an exciting and growing glass base of its own. It’s our belief that Dubai will become the perfect worldwide venue for the industry as we go forward” he concludes.

Reservations for next year’s Gulf Glass exhibition are underway, and demands on space are already meaning that many of the key locations have been reserved. Make sure you don’t miss out on this biennial opportunity, and contact the team today via
