Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW) LLC has announced plans to expand in Europe with the construction of a new automotive glass manufacturing facility in Sroda Slaska, near Wroclaw, Poland. The new facility’s manufacturing focus will be on high-technology, high-content windshields with full surface control that meet the needs of the European premium vehicle market. This segment currently accounts for approximately 60% of European auto production.

“The addition of this state-of-the-art facility in Poland provides PGW the opportunity to significantly increase its scope of business and continue to develop and produce value-added solutions for our European customers,” said James D. Wiggins, chairman and CEO. “Our innovative technology, the new facility, and our expanding relationships with key European customers all position our business for sustained growth.”

Groundbreaking for the new facility is planned for mid-November, with production expected to begin in early 2012. When fully operational, the new manufacturing site will employ over 170 people.
