The idea of creating the company was based on the production of magnetron-coated glass (covering glass with metal). It was the plant’s original field of activity. Back then, glass processing was only beginning to develop as an industry. Magnetron-coated, tempered and painted glass products were a novelty. As time went by, standards, norms and requirements for glazing were introduced. Tempered glass and triplex started to be considered as safe types. Modern Glass was the first plant in the Ural region to begin safety glass production.
