New pane and tempered Glass Products for Kosovo

Gezim Zhdrella – Termopan N.P.SH is sole proprietorship that designs, produces and sells decorative panels, PVC doors, windows and all kinds of glass.

The company was established in 1992 as a family business and has been growing continuously to a business with 31 employees today. Thanks to investments in machinery, marketing and investments in sales the company has become a well-known brand in the field of production of decorative panels, doors and windows and also flat glass cutting and processing.

A market review of additional product opportunities highlighted a lack of locally produced tempered and colour the glass. Therefore the company decided to invest in a production line for tempered and coloured glass to supply the local market as well as to expand into the regional markets. Apart from the competitive advantages and increased sales, this investment also improves the company’s occupational health and safety standards ad product quality and safety.

With the help of the Kosovo SME Competitiveness Support Programme, the company invested in a new tempering furnace and a glass colouring machine.

Termopan received free technical assistance to optimize its investment project and a 15% cash-back grant after the successful project verification, funded by the European Union.
