Galalite Screens expands to Germany


Galalite Screens, a leading manufacturer of cinema screens, announced plans to expand operations in Germany. The investments will double Galalite’s capacity for making Prism3D and Digilite screens. The facility in Germany will be fully operational by mid-2013.

“With the explosion of 3D films arriving in cinemas worldwide, orders for our screens have risen significantly,” says Shabbir Galabhaiwala, owner of parent company GTC Industries. “In order to meet that demand and speed customer deliveries, we made the strategic decision to open a facility in Germany.” The facility was an existing screen-coating operation that Galalite was affiliated with.

Family-run since 1959, Galalite’s head office is situated in Mumbai, India. The company is one of the largest supplier of screens to Indian exhibitors. For more information, visit
