PPG Industries is providing the engineering design and process technology for a new fiber glass manufacturing facility to be built in Clarksville, Tenn., for MW/MB, a joint venture of roofing companies Tamko Roofing Products, Inc. and IKO Industries, Ltd. Under a long-term services agreement, PPG will also provide bushings, technical services, technology updates and employee training, and negotiate for the supply of raw materials. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The plant, which will have a manufacturing capacity of 150 million pounds, is expected to be in service by early 2006 to produce wet chopped strands for Tamko, based in Joplin, Mo., and IKO, of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The facility will provide a portion of the fiber glass needed by the two companies, which will continue buying wet chop fiber glass from the merchant market.
