Global Glass Solutions (GGS), a designer, manufacturer and distributor of glass products serving the Middle East region, has opened its new 280,000m²-processing facility at the Al Ghail Industrial Park in Ras Al Khaimah.

With a capacity for up to 1,000m² of glass per day, the GGS facility will manufacture a range of processing products for the entire GCC region.

"The new facility has been built according to the highest level of European standards and practices, ensuring that we strictly follow the stringent environmental sustainability specifications of Ras Al Khaimah and that we cater to the quality demands of our customers,” said GGS MD Amer Al Aloul.
