More from China Glass: Deron Patterson Gives First-Hand Report

Deron Patterson, international sales manager, flat glass international, for PPG Industries, traveled to China recently to take part in the China Glass Expo, which took place in Shanghai.

“The Shanghai glass show has been very informative and busy at our PPG and Henry F. Teichmann booth,” says Patterson. “I always knew PPG was a world leader in the glass industry, but after attending the show and seeing the many Chinese float glass companies and MSVD low-E coating companies proudly display the PPG logo on their respective booths, that in and of itself tells the story about PPG technology leadership.”

Patterson says he was also happy to read this week that China’s government has made commitments to reduce carbon emissions by way of reducing coal plants for energy.

“PPG Industries is a part of the solution by way of our innovative and sustainable OxyFuel glass melting technology and our energy saving solar control Solarban low-E coatings.”

In addition to his time at the show, Patterson says making the trip he also flew over the North Pole for the first time and also learned a few Chinese phrases. “Ni hao ma” means “how are you?” and “Ni kan qi lai hen nian qing!” means “you look younger than your age.”
