Moving onto Monterrey

Mexico is the world’s hub of container glassmaking. The Central American country’s glassmaking sector is thriving thanks to its rich cultural heritage, strategic location and accessible international policies.

The country is famous for its diverse beers and spirits, the majority of which are packaged in glass. As a result its glass packaging industry is fl ourishing.

Mexico is home to an array of domestic manufacturers as well as global organisations such as O-I and Heineken. The world’s largest container glass plant is located in Mexico in Piedras Negras on the US Border.

Against this backdrop, Glassman is proud to return to Monterrey for the first time since 2008 for Glassman 2020.

High praise for Glassman Latin America:

“The show has been good as we have had the opportunity to meet with customers from the Guadalajara area, the Mexico city area, as well as from Chile and Central America.”

Erica Jaspers, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Dura Temp
