Overview of Glass Manufacturing & Handling (3210-GL)

— Companies in this industry manufacture glass and glass products, including glass containers, flat glass, fiberglass, and specialty glass products.

The glass manufacturing process typically involves the following steps:
Stage 1: Collection of Raw Materials - Stage 2: Preparation of Batch - Stage 3: Melting & Refining - Stage 4: Fabrication (Blowing, Casting, Drawing, Pressing, Rolling, Spinning) - Stage 5: Annealing - Stage 6: Inspection

Major companies include Corning, Guardian Industries, Owens-Illinois, and PPG Industries (all based in the US) as well as Asahi Glass (Japan), Saint-Gobain (France), Fuyao Glass Industry Group (China), and SCHOTT (Germany). Demand comes mainly from the construction, auto, bottling, and container industries. Specialty products (glassware, lenses, mirrors, optical fiber) account for 65% of US industry revenue, containers for about 20%, and flat glass for about 15%. Professional Plastics offers high-temperature plastics, composites and technical ceramics used in various phases of glass production, for high-temperature components used for handling and shaping of glass. We also handle wear-resistant lining materials for bin, hoppers, and chutes where raw materials are handled and conveyed.
