CiNER Glass Groundbreaking Ceremony Held in Belgium
Ciner Glass is establishing a state-of-the-art glass production facility at Kristalpark III in Lommel, Belgium. The investment of more than €600 million will lead to the creation of between 500 and 550 new jobs in the region. The construction of the factory is set to begin this month.

Once fully operational, the factory will have the capacity to produce 1,300tpd of lightweight containers with 75% recycled glass content. This groundbreaking investment represents a total financial commitment of 600 million euros, with a focus on ecology and sustainability.

We aim to be part of the thriving local economy and contribute to further progress. Our history, as that of Lommel, is defined as a mentality of pioneering, innovation, and pride in glass production.”
