Changes Name of Strategic Business Unit: PPG Flat Glass Becomes PPG Performance
PPG Industries Inc., headquartered in Pittsburgh, has announced
that the strategic business unit formerly known as PPG Flat Glass
has been renamed PPG Performance Glazings.
Mark J. Orcutt, vice president of PPG Performance Glazings, said
the name change reflects the company's focus on value-added products
and services, such as Solarban® 60 glass and the family of PPG
Certified Fabricator Programs, which now generate a majority
of the business unit's revenue.
"Our business continues to evolve to meet the needs of the
residential, architectural and specialty glass markets. The goal
- as "performance glazings" implies - is to help our customers
enhance the performance and value of their products," he said.
