Webasto develops innovative automotive glazing out of Luxembourg. Its new production line enables Webasto to compete in the growing market of glass roofs for electric and self-driving cars and to introduce high-tech features into automotive glazing. With this new production line the company makes significant energy savings and reduces its CO2 emissions.
The Ministry of the Economy is supporting this investment as part of its environmental aid program.
This investment is perfectly in line with our economic development policy, which aims to apply sustainable technologies in Industry 4.0.
Minister of the Economy Franz Fayot said: “With this investment, Webasto confirms its commitment to the Luxembourg site and its confidence in the future. The Luxembourg site plays a key role in the development of the group’s R&D and engineering activities in the glass sector. This investment is perfectly in line with our economic development policy, which aims to apply sustainable technologies in Industry 4.0.”
Founded in February 1992 by the American company Guardian Industries, the Luxembourg production site was acquired in 2014 by the Japanese group Central-Glass CO. and was known as Carlex Glass Luxembourg before being taken over by German company Webasto.
