PFG Building Glass, a float glass manufacturer in Southern Africa,
has switched its float technical assistance providers from Pilkington
to Guardian. The transition was effective July 1.
According to the announcement made by PFG chief executive officer
Stewart Jennings, Pilkington will still be involved in providing
back-up assistance with some areas of the line, which has the
proprietary Pilkington technology.
"We believe there will be a smooth transition in our float
technical assistance arrangement, and wish to thank both parties
for the constructive manner in which we have been able to negotiate
the change," said Jennings in the announcement.
