Pilkington Announces Price Increase

Pilkington North America has announced that it will increase its pricing on all automotive glass parts by 4 percent, effective February 4, 2008. The announcement was made in a memo issued by William George, director of marketing for the Columbus, Ohio-based company.

"Many of the costs that affect our industry, to include petroleum-based products, raw materials and energy, have risen," writes George. "These rising energy and overall costs continue to impact our entire industry."

The announcement comes on the heels of a similar announcement by PPG Industries late last week. (CLICK HERE for related story.)
