PPG was founded as the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company in 1883, establishing the first plate glass plant in the United States. Since then, PPG has been known for 130 years of innovation, including producing the world’s first double-paned insulating glass in 1945; becoming the nation’s first glass manufacturer to use the float glass process in 1963, which remains the predominant method of making glass today; and developing a myriad of other products and improvements in high-performing glass.
PPG also is the first manufacturer in the United States to earn Cradle to Cradle™ certification for its entire line of high-performance architectural glass products, which signals PPG’s commitment to environmental stewardship and serves as a benchmark of our dedication to developing and enhancing sustainable products.
