French multinational corporation Saint-Gobain said that it will investaround€135 million (about Rs 975 crores) to expand its flat glass production capacity in the country by setting up a new production facility at its Sriperumbudur (Chennai) site.

The expansion expected to be completed by 2018, will increase the capacity by around 1,000 tonne a day at Sriperumbudur site, which currently produces 1,500 tonne of glasses.

“Saint-Gobain is to invest around €135 million over the next two years to develop production capacity at its glass facility near Chennai, India’s largest such facility,” said the company in a press release.
