In April Saint Gobain welcomed agents from around the world to tour the newly commissioned glass plant near Saint-Quentin in Picardy, Northern France. This factory is very close to their old site in Mers-Les-Bain where they have been able to retain staff and skills within the group. With an annual capacity give or take a billion bottles a year the new factory produces Type 1 glass both clear and amber. Pearce Pharmaceuticals, a business division of The Continental Group has represented Saint Gobain glass for the pharmaceutical industry in Australia for over 37 years. We are indeed a glass supply specialist.
