The company has ambitious plans for the domestic automotive glass market
Starting in September, Shandong PGW Jinjing Automotive Glass Company, Limited (PJG) has begun production of coated glass for the domestic auto replacement glass market. With support from parent companies Jinjing and Mexico Vitro, PJG plans to focus on the Chinese market, with ambitions to occupy a share of both OEM auto glass and middle and high end ARG markets, especially in the coated ARG market.
The company feels confident in their ability to provide more comfortable and environmental coated glass products for car owners. The company’s original co-founder, Pittsburgh Glass Works Hong Kong Limited (PGW) , started the development of coated automotive glass in the 1990s. The Sungate brand is known worldwide, and PGW supplied many products to Daimler and Benz.
PJG was jointly established by Shandong Jinjing Science & Technology Stock Co., Ltd and Pittsburgh Glass Works Hong Kong Limited, and mainly produces and sells automotive glass. The workshop covers an area of over 30,000 square metres. The design and construction of the plant were influenced heavily by US engineers, referencing the optimized layout and facilities of the United States and Poland PGW plants and designed to build a domestic first-class automotive glass manufacturing plant. PJG, which also adopted PGW international standard management methods, hired professional technical and quality teams, and is strictly following the quality management system of IATF 16949 to produce automotive glass products that meet the international quality standard.
Mexico Vitro acquired PGW along with PPG’s flat glass business, complementing their array of glass products around the world. In addition to OEM and ARG glass products, they also produce soda ash for glass production and float glass.
