Solar Gard facility to support growing Asian market for architectural and automotive window film

Saint-Gobain Solar Gard, manufacturer and distributor of specialty films and backsheet materials, has announced opening its new manufacturing facility in Qingdao, China. Located in the Shandong province, the modern manufacturing plant was reportedly officially opened by Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and CEO of the Compagnie de Saint-Gobain, during a ceremony attended by a number of Saint-Gobain and Solar Gard executives, in addition to local and state officials and dignitaries.

Saint-Gobain claimed that the new manufacturing plant met California’s stringent EPA standards and would pursue ISO 14001:2004 certification and focus on the production of architectural and automotive window films providing safety and security, glare reduction, energy saving and C02 emission reduction solutions for the rapidly growing Asian market.

“The opening of this cutting edge facility is a further step for Saint-Gobain to expand its investment and commitment in China,” said Chalendar. “As the world leader in the construction and habitat markets, it has been a priority for us to do everything we can to both serve and accompany market growth here in China and beyond. This significant investment in Qingdao will enable us to be much closer to the rapidly growing market for specialty films in China. In recent years Solar Gard has significantly expanded its customer base throughout Asia, especially in China.”
