The investment in the F Furnace in Derrylin, coming after the opening of the Glass facility in Elton Cheshire in 2006, once again reaffirms the commitment of Quinn Glass to the UK and Ireland Container Glass market. <ref>[http://www.packaging-technology.com/projects/quinn/ Packaging Gateway, 'Quinn Glass bottle production facility, Elton', 17th September 2007]</ref>''Quinn Radiators'' has constructed the largest and most automated domestic radiator manufacturing plant in Europe at Newport, South Wales. The plant with a floor area in excess of one million square feet represents an investment of £133 million by the Quinn Group and at full capacity can produce 4 million radiators a year. This major investment has created the most modern and efficient radiator plant in the world. <ref>[http://www.rte.ie/business/2005/0816/QUINN.html RTE Business, 'Quinn group to create 460 welsh jobs', 16th August 2005]</ref>The Plastics division has successfully set up its new facility in France and added a new warehouse and two new production lines to the plant in Pribram, Czech Republic.
