Complete project management of a new production line for special glasses

Ceramic glass for cooking hobs

On 1 September 2016, Keraglass, a company specialising in the manufacture of special glass, obtained a building permit for the installation of a third furnace at its industrial site in Bagneaux-sur-Loing (Seine-et-Marne).

This third furnace enabled the company, which manufactures glass for baking trays and, to a marginal extent, glass for fireplace inserts and wood stoves, to increase its production capacity by around 30%.

The works, carried out in a confined space including two lines in operation, involved the deconstruction of an existing old furnace, the rehabilitation of its building, the installation of a new manufacturing line, all utilities, electrical networks and smoke treatment. The commissioning took place at the beginning of 2018.
