PFG's float lines are among the most advanced of their kind in the world.
We produce 260 000 tons of quality float glass a year, for supply to customers in the building and automotive sectors of southern Africa, Europe, the US and other export markets. Our customers include processors, merchants and distributors of glass, furniture manufacturers, appliance manufacturers and aluminium fabricators, as well as producers of automotive glass products to global OEM quality standards.
The PFG site was developed by Pilkington in the 1950s, with the first drawn sheet glass line (SP1) commissioned in 1951. A second line, SP2, was introduced in 1965. In 1977, the float glass line (SP3) was commissioned and its first campaign ran for eight years. Since then the line has been enhanced on several occasions, to include the latest technology and introduce ever-improving quality and control systems. In 2007 we commissioned our second world class float line.
