Project scope and objective
ZZ Glass Inc., Caribbean Glass Industry SA and Parque Caribbean Glass SA (collectively, ZZ Glass, the Company or the Borrower) are Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) created for the development, construction and reactivation (putting back into operation) of an existing, abandoned glass bottle production plant located in the Pedro Brand Municipality in the Dominican Republic (the Project). ZZ Glass, which operates both as the central entity and the commercial arm of the Group, will market an annual production of 72,000 tons (MT) of glass bottles in both the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean through long-term contracts or through spot market transactions. The Project will benefit the local economy by (i) replacing glass bottle imports, and (ii) the generation of currently non-existent exports of this product.
The funds will be used (1) to acquire the land where the glass bottle production plant and existing fixed assets will operate; (2) to purchase machinery; and (3) for the civil construction required to refurbish the factory
