Glaston's glass processing subsidiary initiates employee co-operation negotiations
GLASTON CORPORATION  Stock Exchange Release     3 September 2009 at 13.00       

Glaston's glass processing subsidiary initiates employee co-operation           
On 8 September 2009, the Glaston Corporation subsidiary Tamglass Glass          
Processing Ltd will initiate statutory employer-employee negotiations under the 
act on Co-determination within Undertakings (YT negotiations) on stopping its   
solar energy glass manufacturing operations as the current customer hasn't      
placed any new orders.   
The glass processing plant in Akaa is operated on behalf of a customer. The     
solar energy glass operations currently employ less than 20 people. Details of  
the impact of the plan on personnel will be announced when negotiations with    
personnel representatives have been completed.    
The plan to stop production at Akaa does not affect Glaston Corporation's       
manufacturing and product development of products aimed at the manufacture of   
solar energy glass.
