ERJ staff report (DS)
St Helens, UK - Glass fibre maker NGF Europe Ltd has announced an investment of Â£4 million at its site in St Helens, with the creation of 24 new jobs. The site will become the first fully-integrated high tensile strength glass cord manufacturing factory in Europe and the only such facility outside Japan.
Products from the site are used to reinforce rube compounds, primarily used in belts. The high tensile glass should help to improve belt performance and will shorten production times with the site reducing its dependency on filament delivery from NSG in Japan and reduce transport costs and environmental impact, in line with NSG Group's Sustainability agenda..
