New name with members, products, services and benefits of former PPG program

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) has launched the Vitro Certified ™ Network, which retains members, products and services of certified fabricator programs formerly operated by PPG’s flat glass business unit, which Vitro acquired on Oct. 1.

The Vitro Certified Network encompasses three separate programs: Vitro Certified Fabricators, Vitro Certified Laminators and Vitro Certified Architectural Window Manufacturers.

Glenn Miner, director of construction, Vitro Architectural Glass, said customers who work with members of the Vitro Certified Network will receive the program’s full range of benefits.

“We will continue to support and certify the industry’s top fabricators to ensure architects, glazing contractors and general contractors have access to premium Solarban® glass products and Vitro glass services,” he said.

“Our customers will also continue to work with the people and products they’ve relied on for years while receiving the added support of a company focused on the glass business.”

Vitro Glass announced in October that it will spend $55 million to construct a new jumbo MSVD (magnetron-sputtered vacuum deposition) coater in the U.S., which will be the largest of its kind in North America.

MSVD coaters are used to produce high-performing, energy-efficient low-emissivity (low-e) glasses such Solarban glasses.

The company also is expanding its sales and support staffs to enhance customer service and increasing investment in the Vitro Glass Research and Technology Center in Harmar Township, Pennylvania, one of the world’s largest facilities devoted to advancing glass technology.

Members of the Vitro Certified Network, are supported, audited and certified by Vitro Glass to provide the highest quality fabricated glass products with accelerated turnaround times to meet project-critical deadlines.

They also receive advanced training and education in glass-handling, fabrication, packaging and shipping to ensure consistent product color, quality and reliability.

As the exclusive source of high-performance Solarban glass products, Vitro Certified Fabricators have the ability to accommodate requests for special shapes and configurations.

To meet critical delivery demands, Vitro Certified Network members also have access to a range of logistics and supply tools, including the Vitro Concierge Program, a priority glass-supply program for large, complex or high-profile projects.

Vitro Certified Laminators specialize in lamination of Solarban glasses for architectural glass, safety and security glass applications, while Vitro Certified Architectural Window Manufacturers do the same for high-quality commercial windows.
