This year, Ba Vidro is celebrating 100 years of activity.

And this year, the group is celebrating in the best way possible, expanding to Europe, in particular, the east, with the acquisition of Warta Glass.

Production and plants
With a total of seven factories and 2,145 employees, 1,470 at its Iberian plants and 675 in Poland, at Warta Glass, BA Vidro has an annual production of approximately five thousand million containers in 11 colours: amber, white, light blue, flint, UVA white, black, antique green, emerald green, Georgia green, UVA green and dead leaf.
The factories are structured – in terms of size, technology and auxiliary equipment – and the production lines are specialized to satisfy the different needs for glass packaging of the food and beverage industries.
All factories are equipped with modern automatic inspection machines that verify 100 per cent of the products to guarantee the conformity of their physical and dimensional characteristics.

All production units have been equipped with automatic inspection machinery and certified to ISO 9001-2000.
