Two Centuries of Brilliance. One Vision for Glass.

Vitro Architectural Glass is backed by two globally proven legacies in commercial glass manufacturing: PPG Glass and Vitro. It all started in 1883, when the foundations of these two historic glass companies began to take shape. Over the next century, both companies would evolve to become glass industry leaders in their own right.

Building a Brighter, More Sustainable World

Vitro Architectural Glass is committed to environmental sustainability. Throughout its history, Vitro Glass has continually raised the bar, becoming the first company to achieve Cradle to Cradle® Certification for its entire collection of architectural glasses and recently, publishing North America’s first third-party-verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for architectural glass.

Our Plants & Facilities

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.
