June 17, 2009
Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW) LLC is taking over Vitro America's
auto glass distribution business, effective June 24, according to
a letter issued today by the Pittsburgh-based company to both companies'
customers. According to PGW's announcement, the company will take
over all orders as of June 24.
For pricing, the company says it will be evaluating all current
Vitro America prices and PGW prices, and PGW salespeople will "address
any pricing issues going forward."
Marc Talbert, vice president and general manager of ARG for PGW,
who authored the letter sent to customers today, was not available
for comment at press time.
Though glassBYTEs.com/AGRR magazine has learned from
numerous sources that Vitro America announced the change to employees
this morning, Vitro America spokesperson Alice Dickerson declined
to comment, and calls to Vitro spokesperson Arturo Carrillo had
not been returned at press time.
