Several suppliers of packaging glass have released their annual reports, providing an insight into a mixed business year characterized by good deliveries in terms of volume amid deteriorating turnover and profitability. Expectations are “cautiously optimistic” for the current business year. Glassworks told EUWID of machines operating to capacity and low stocks amid strong pressure on prices, with the latter being fuelled by the distinctive European competition on the glass market. The price of cullet is back to normal while complaints over quality remain, according to respondents.
