Şişecam announces world’s largest glass production complex in Eskişehir


Apr. 2, 2024 - Şişecam has ignited its new glass packaging furnace in Eskişehir and put its glassware furnace into operation after cold repair.

With these significant investments, totalling USD 174 million, Şişecam’s consolidated production capacity for glass packaging and glassware in Eskişehir has reached approximately 1 million tonnes. This milestone establishes the Şişecam Eskişehir complex as the world’s largest integrated glass production location, poised to deliver higher efficiency in resource use and operational productivity.

Şişecam’s Chairman and Executive Member of the Board, Dr. Ahmet Kirman, shared insights on the investment, “Our glass packaging furnace, initiated with an investment of approximately USD 145 million, will provide employment for an additional 127 people. The furnace, with an annual gross capacity of 198 thousand tonnes, is set to produce high-quality bottles and jars. This investment, made in a challenging economic climate, ensures we meet increasing demand and support the sectors we serve. As a result, Şişecam Eskişehir Glass Packaging Factory, equipped with five furnaces and 24 lines, has become the world’s largest with a total production capacity of about 760 thousand gross tonnes annually.”

Şişecam becomes the global leader in glassware
Görkem Elverici, Şişecam’s CEO, stated, “Our investments in Eskişehir are not just about glass packaging. The cold repair of our second furnace at the Eskişehir Glassware Production Facility, completed with an investment of around USD 29 million, has significantly enhanced our capacity, establishing Şişecam as a global leader in glassware production. The updated furnace, with an annual gross capacity of 64 thousand tonnes, will also create 246 new jobs. Consequently, our glassware production capacity in Eskişehir has reached approximately 190 thousand gross tonnes annually.”
