Siam Glass Ayutthaya inaugurates new production line
In 2018, SORG was awarded the contract by SIAM GLASS Industry Co., Ltd. (OSOTSPA GROUP) for the supply of a state-of-the-art glass melting plant, including a SORG® STW working end as well as two SORG 340S® and two SORG® 240 forehearths. By this, the plant in Ayutthaya, Thailand should be supplemented by a second production line.
In the middle of August this year, the inauguration ceremony for the new SORG end-fired furnace was finally held at SIAM GLASS Ayutthaya. The SGA 2 furnace with a melting rate of 310 t/d was heated up in the presence of the senior management of the OSOTSPA Group. On the new production line, e.g. glass bottles are made for the very popular energy drink M150.
This is the first Greenfield project for the SORG Company with this important customer in Thailand. Therefore, Mr. Alexander Sorg personally attended the celebration and presented the owner, Mr. Petch Osathanugrah, with a glass art with congratulations for the inauguration.

As part of the celebrations, to which political and industrial prominence from Thailand and Malaysia was invited, the customer has staged an extensive supporting program. In addition, a new training center was inaugurated at the same time, which will be established at the new location. A model of the new SORG melting furnace is also on display there.
