PPG declares glass products unit force majeure in West US, Canada

PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries Inc said that it has declared force majeure on the production of architectural, residential and specialty glass products for customers located in the western US and Canada because of unanticipated mechanical production issues at its Fresno, California, flat glass manufacturing facility.

The company has been unable to produce glass at the facility since 30 Aug. Although PPG is working to resume normal operations, there is currently no timeline for restoring production of commercial-grade glass at the facility, it said.

“We are working to solve mechanical issues at the facility that are prohibiting production and affecting our ability to meet customers’ demands at this time,” said Richard Beuke, vice president, flat glass, PPG.
