PPG Declares Force Majeure in Western U.S. and Canada for Glass Products
PPG Industries recently announced that it has declared force majeure on the production of architectural, residential and specialty glass products for customers located in the western U.S. and Canada because of unanticipated mechanical production issues at its Fresno, Calif., flat glass manufacturing facility. The company has been unable to produce glass at the facility since August 30. Although PPG is working to resume normal operations, there is currently no timeline for restoring production of commercial-grade glass at the facility.
“We are working to solve mechanical issues at the facility that are prohibiting production and affecting our ability to meet customers’ demands at this time," said Richard Beuke, vice president. “PPG is working diligently to minimize disruptions to our customers by supplying glass from other manufacturing facilities and bringing the Fresno facility back into safe operation as soon as possible.”
