Our Plants & Facilities


Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) is exclusively dedicated to glass innovation and fueled by the same people, plants and products that made PPG Glass one of the industry’s most respected and reliable architectural glass manufacturers. Now, along with Vitro S.A.B., the leading glass producer in Latin America, we form the largest flat glass manufacturer in the Western Hemisphere, combining 134 and 108 respective years of glass-making experience and advanced glass coating technology. 

Now, these two storied legacies work in concert to serve the diverse needs of building owners, architects, glass fabricators and glazing contractors with a range of low-iron, tinted, as well as double-, triple- and quad-silver magnetron-sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) low-e coated glasses. 

Vitro Architectural Glass currently operates five float lines and five glass coaters in the United States, including four MSVD coaters—the sixth U.S. coater (and fifth U.S. MSVD coater) will be operational in early 2018 upon completion of a new jumbo MSVD glass coater in Wichita Falls, Texas. This milestone will bring Vitro’s enterprise-wide total to seven glass coaters, including six in the U.S. and one non-MSVD coater in Mexico.

Throughout the Western Hemisphere, Vitro operates 10 float lines enterprise-wide. Vitro’s seven U.S. float lines include five operated by Vitro Architectural Glass—three of which feature low-energy-consuming “oxy-fuel” glass-melting furnaces—and two operated by Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW). Vitro also operates three float lines across its two plants in Mexico.
