High-tech glass serves as the technological foundation for new equipment features such as light effects, shading at the touch of a button, or integrated solar cells in the roof system. To respond to this trend, Webasto Luxembourg is planning to build a new glass production line. On Tuesday, Leon Gloden, Mayor of Grevenmacher, Marc Lentz, Mayor of Biwer, and Francois Knaff, as a representative of the Luxembourg Ministry of Economy, were guests at the site in Grevenmacher to celebrate the ground-breaking ceremony for this expansion of the Webasto facility.

During the expansion of production, Webasto is developing the existing infrastructure area by approximately 13,000 m2 and modernising part of the existing facility with state-of-the-art technology. This optimisation includes expanding capacity, achieving significant energy savings, and increasing production efficiency.

The renovations and expansions increase production and enable the manufacture of large high-tech glass roofs for automobiles. "In the glass of these systems, innovative technologies such as switchable glazing, lighting, or solar cells are integrated. These new features in the glass make the roof of the vehicule an innovation platform," explains Axel Berning, Managing Director of Webasto Luxembourg.

By investing in the new facility, Webasto strengthens the quarter in Luxembourg as a competent centre for high-tech glass. The completion of the new production line is planned for mid-2024. To ensure the perfect progress of this production extension, over 60 qualified employees will be hired.

The Grevenmacher production site has been in operation since 1992, initially under the ownership of the American glass manufacturer Guardian Industries Corp. From 2014, it was operated under the name Carlex by the Central-Glass Co. Ltd. and since August 9, 2022, the facility has been part of the Webasto Group.
