Dr. Greiche Glass buys another furnace from Glaston


“Our definition of glass has changed over the years – from a simple see-through, solid material to a high-performance smart product,” says Mohamed Ezz El-Din, Technical Department Manager at DG Glass. “That’s why we have had to change too. Today, we’re investing in new technologies like Glaston’s HTBS bending and tempering furnace to change the definition of automotive glass we’re bringing to the market.”

Dr. Greiche Glass (DG Glass) has grown from being established in automotive glass in 1985 to presently running six top-quality production facilities with over 1,600 employees.

Headquartered in the city of 10th of Ramadan, near Cairo, DG Glass is the leading glass processor in the Middle East and Africa and is the main glass supplier for all car manufacturers in Egypt.

At the end of 2016, DG Glass commissioned the new HTBS bending and tempering furnace from Glaston to help the company increase its production capacity for glass products to serve both passenger cars and bus manufacturers.

The company’s relationship with Glaston dates back to 1992, when the first bending and tempering line for sidelites was ordered. DG Glass has several Glaston furnaces. One of the previous investments included Glaston Matrix, a modern windshield bending furnace, commissioned in 2016, along with the new HTBS.

“Glaston’s HTBS bending and tempering furnace is well known in the market for its flexibility and high end-product quality. This is exactly what we were looking for to meet the growing requirements of the modern automotive market. And indeed, it allows us to be more creative when needed.”
