Innovation has been at the heart of NSG Group since its inception. Inventions and continuous advancements in the production of flat glass have enabled cutting-edge façades, automotive glazing, and technical glass applications.
Because of this, NSG Group has been able to offer customers new products, greater performance, and excellent service, thanks to the efforts of NSG Group R&D. NSG Group is also using glass innovation to tackle many 21st century challenges, including addressing climate change through decarbonisation. They can take on these challenges as a result of a strong history in innovation, a diverse talent pool of scientists and engineers, and a progressive approach to academic and industrial collaboration. Historically, the glassmaking industry has been insular and slow-moving. Knowledge was less likely to be shared and collaborative approaches were not common. In the modern world, in addition to the challenges of climate change and globalization, the pace of development and changes in technology mean the historical way of working is no longer sustainable. Companies must be open to different perspectives, and quicker to react to the changing world. Consequently, NSG Group has been developing productive and collaborative partnerships with universities, tech start-ups, and key global business partners.
