Renault DusterSaint-Gobain Sekurit, one of the most preferred glass manufacturer in the world  has secured a deal with Renault India to supply glasses for their best selling Duster SUV.

Saint-Gobain Sekurit will be the sole supplier of glasses for the Renault Duster. This will definitely bring in huge boost to the glass company since the Duster is proving to be popular among the Indians and Renault has managed to put almost 20,000 Dusters on road.

Saint-Gobain claims that the glass that goes into Renault Duster will offer superior acoustic, atmospheric, thermal and visual comfort while ensuring greater safety and security to the customers. In addition to supplying Renault India, Saint-Gobain Sekurit India also supplies glasses to Dacia’s European plant and has won accolades for being one of the best suppliers.

The Renault Duster has clocked around 17,000 bookings as of July and by the end of November, the company has delivered more than 19,000 Dusters in India. Renault India has also started exporting the Duster to UK and Ireland under the Dacia identity and is said to be exploring other possible RHD export markets where Renault has presence.

Being the single largest glass supplier for one of the country’s most popular new cars will bring in lots of sales boost to Saint-Gobain Sekurit India.

    Since Duster’s news first hit IAB, I was worried sick and was looking forward to figuring out who would be glass supplier. I read every scrap of Duster news that came forth on IAB with no luck until this post.

    Rest assured, now I can sleep peacefully and not worry if it was Corning or some other manufacturer.

    Thank you for a brilliant piece of auto journalism report. Keep up the good work.
