INDUSTRYNEWS GLASS NSGTRIMS PRODUCTION IN UK


NSG Pilkington is to mothball one of its three float lines in the UK, with the loss of 150 jobs. Manufacturing will cease on the UK6 Floatline at the Greengate site and the solar cutting operation at the Cowley Hill site – both in St Helens - by the end of April 2012. The decision followed the announcement of the Q3 results to the Tokyo Stock Exchange.


NSG said that the changes in the UK are “in-line with a global restructuring initiative to help address a challenging short term market outlook.” This includes the European


building products market and the global market for Solar Energy glass. The measures will help re-establish profit growth from FY2013 onwards.

TO MANUFACTURE OF GLAZING PRODUCTS IN UK


This includes the European building products market and the global market for Solar Energy glass. The measures are aimed at helping re-establish profit growth from FY2013 onwards.


‘NSG Group states it is clear the longer-term prospects for these markets remain positive and it remains committed to the manufacture of glazing products in the UK.’


NEW LOOK GLASS CLEANER FROM BOHLE


Bohle professional glass cleaner has long been the industry’s favourite product for putting the finishing touch to glass installations. Now, the company has repackaged its best selling glass cleaner as part of the Bohle Group’s global branding strategy that will see all the companies products sharing the same corporate look worldwide.


Though the product inside has not changed, the new look blue and white aerosol can now carries instructions for use and safety information in a number of languages. Bohle Sales Promotion Manager


‘Bohle professional glass cleaner is a high performance product that is a consistent best seller in the UK.’


Alic McCabe explains, ‘Bohle professional glass cleaner is a high performance product that is a consistent best seller in the UK. Demand for the product is growing worldwide via our new website and it makes sense to repackage the product to reflect the global nature of the Bohle brand’.


McCabe is at pains to explain the product inside the can remains the same, ‘Only the outside look has changed. The Bohle professional glass cleaner inside is the same great product the industry has come to rely on’. The Bohle product number also remains the same, BO5107900 and for the next month the product is on Special Offer via Bohle’s new online shop at www.bohle-group.com.

62 « Clearview NMS « March 2012 « www.clearview-uk.com NSG Group states it is clear the longer-


term prospects for these markets remain positive and it remains committed to the manufacture of glazing products in the UK. The announcement in no way affects the company’s £36M investment in an off-line coating facility at Pilkington Park, adjacent to its Cowley Hill site in St Helens, which will create 50 skilled jobs.


UK 6 was due to undergo refurbishment next year, as it has been operating for 19 years, and the group says the announcement will have no effect on the supply of glass to the UK building products market.
