Saint-Gobain inaugurated three world-class facilities to meet the growing demand of the glass markets - both domestic and international. Each of these facilities was dedicated to the nation by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Edappadi Palaniswami. Set up with an investment of over Rs 12 billion, this takes the cumulative investment in the world glass complex, Sriperumbudur to more than Rs 30 billion.
Over the years, the company has made significant investments across all our businesses - glass for buildings and for automotive, gypsum plasterboard and plasters, abrasives, ceramic materials, performance plastics and so on. ôSince our entry into India in 1996, we have invested about Rs 75 billion. Today, we have built a pan-India manufacturing presence and have developed strong market positions in all our businesses. About 95 per cent of our local sales are of products manufactured at our plants in India," says Anand Y Mahajan, Chairman, Saint-Gobain India.
