Industry 4.0 Line
In 2020 we launched the world’s first industry 4.0 glass production line. The line will be equipped with the best industry technology, being able to talk to each other to correct faults, increase efficiency and truly set the standard for global container glass production.
Our virtual reality room is used to train our glassmakers in a safe virtual environment. The hi-tech equipment means new recruits can get up to speed on how to run glassmaking machines without having to disrupt production.
