The Pilkington plant, which opened in 1962 and employs about 160 hourly union workers and 30 salaried people, is part of Pilkington North America, a manufacturer of flat building glass owned by the Tokyo-based NSG Group.
Some plant improvement work is planned to begin this fall, but the bulk of the project would launch in the spring.
That involves shutting down the round-the-clock plant for about 90 days of work to demolish an enormous glass-making tank or furnace, replace it with a tank of new, more heat-resistant material and add equipment that will enable expanded production of more types of glass.
Part of the investment will involve installation of new advanced pollution control systems.
