As early as the 18th century, the greatest Russian scientist, Mikhail Lomonosov, wrote: "I sing praise to you not for expensive stones, not for gold, but for glass."
Over the past since then, the possibilities of using glass have unlimitedly expanded - from the glazing of buildings, the manufacture of consumer goods to the use of glass in the space industry.
The history of the Saratov technical glass plant is the history of the formation and development of the largest glass industry enterprise in Russia. In most Russian homes, almost every family has the products of Saratov glassworks: whether it's window or furniture glass, double-glazed windows, mirrors, lamps, crystal, household utensils. Saratov sheet polished glass was used in the construction of many unique objects and architectural monuments that became symbols of the era and are inextricably linked with the history of the state: the Kremlin Palace of Congresses, the Ostankino TV Tower, the Borodino Panorama building, the Rossiya Hotel and thousands of other industrial, public and residential buildings throughout country.
