AGP Group (Peru) invests EUR 30 million in Soliver (BE)

AGP Group, a Peruvian manufacturer for the automotive industry, takes over car window manufacturer Soliver. AGP Group is investing EUR 30 million in the Soliver plant in Roeselare, Flanders, expanding its production capabilities to include windshields and panoramic roofs.

European hub

Thanks to the EUR 30 million investment, Soliver will be able to hire over 50 people to augment its current staff of 300 employees in the coming years. Through this acquisition, AGP Group aims to conquer the European market.

We are very excited to build upon Soliver’s great experience and track-record to take high-tech glazing to the next level, enabling our customer’s product development with innovation, agility and flexibility. We believe both companies’ customers will immediately benefit from our new investments aligned with mobility trends.

CEO of AGP Group

A golden opportunity

Based in West Flanders, Soliver is a supplier to premium car brands such as BMW, Audi, Porsche and Lamborghini. The company currently specializes in the production of side windows, which requires a totally different technology and production process than windshields or panoramic roofs.

Car companies prefer to buy everything from the same supplier and the requirements for glazing are becoming increasingly complex. Therefore, this investment offered us a great opportunity to expand our range
