New top role at Nippon for Stuart

The chief executive of Pilkington has been handed a new top role - heading a £3.5bn-turnover business for Nippon Sheet Glass, which bought the iconic St Helens glassmaker last year.

Stuart Chambers, 50, is to take charge of a new global operation with 30,000 staff in 30 countries, making and supplying glass for buildings and vehicles.

Operational from April 1, NSG's `flat glass business' will have factories in the UK, Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam. It will comprise Pilkington's operations and the similar activities of NSG.

The group's other division, based in Tokyo, will produce glass for photocopiers, screens for TV sets and computers and fibreoptic cables.

Mr Chambers, a father of three who lives in Cheshire, was appointed chief executive of Pilkington in 2002 when he succeeded Paolo Scaroni.

When Pilkington was taken over for £2.2bn last June, he became the first westerner to join NSG's board.
