Pilkington is the global leader in aftermarket glass distribution & wholesale. In servicing the aftermarket, Pilkington Automotive is able both to leverage its global OE supply programs and to utilize its flexible, short-run manufacturing expertise to produce glass for models which are no longer current, or for which Pilkington Automotive is not the OE supplier.
Pilkington Automotive is a leader in the development and user of computer simulations for advanced glazing technology. Though probably most frequently associated with the invention of the float process to manufacture the high quality glass used by the automotive industry, Pilkington Automotive has also pioneered other techniques that have led to automotive glazing industry firsts such as:
- the production wraparound windshield
- the S-bend backlight
- dark tint glass
- solar reflective automotive glazing
- full vehicle glazing systems including encapsulation, extrusion, bond-on components and mechanical assemblies
- electrically heated filament windshields.
Safety at Pilkington is paramount and our testing regimes are extremely rigorous. They include impact tests, durability and strength tests and optical quality tests. Testing of our glasses is carried out not just during the development phase, but also at each stage of manufacture to strive to maintain the highest standards.
Because of Pilkington’s superior quality, American Mobile Glass is happy to offer our customers not only the best possible installation quality, but the best possible products as well. As a leading producer of OE glass, we trust Pilkington will continue to deliver exceptional replacement windshields and sidelight glass for all years, makes, and models. We look forward to a long lasting mutually beneficial relationship with this new vendor.
