Yesterday saw plate glass manufacturer SalgóSík Kft open a new unit within its manufacturing plant in Salgótarján, northern Hungary, where the company set up a facility for the production of acid glass. SalgóSík is the first company in Hungary to manufacture acid glass, an opaque product primarily used in interior design and hitherto only available as an import product, Managing Director Géza Fejérvári told BBJ Online. The company expanded the Salgótarján plant to accommodate the new production requirements for Ft 250 million; the project started in late 2003 and the pilot production stage was kicked off in September 2004. The company bought the know-how and production lines from Spain. SalgóSík, whose preliminary 2004 report shows Ft 1.2 billion revenue and Ft 70 million profit, expects turnover to reach Ft 1.4 billion-Ft 1.5 billion this year, of which the new product may bring in approximately Ft 150 million, Fejérvári added.
