Pittsburgh Glass Works European expansion - new automotive glass manufacturing facility in Poland

Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW) LLC, a world leading supplier of automotive glass and services, will expand in Europe with the construction of a new automotive glass manufacturing facility in Poland to provide value-added products to its European customers.

The new 21,000sqm facility’s manufacturing focus will be on high-technology, high-content windshields with full surface control that meets the needs of the European premium vehicle market. This segment currently accounts for approximately 60 percent of European auto production. Production at the Sroda Slaska facility is expected to begin in early 2012. When fully operational, the new manufacturing site will employ in excess of 170 people. Products to be offered by the new plant will include Sungate® and Sungate EP infrared reflective glass, Solextra® blue glass and SoundMaster® enhanced acoustic glass windshields. PGW already operates three other facilities in Europe: in Ettlingen and Trossingen, Germany; and Nantes, France.

PM Group is providing engineering design, procurement and construction management services to PGW. Previously we were responsible for concept design, building permit design and tender design.
