As of today, Vitro Architectural Glass is producing energy-efficient glass in sizes 112.5-percent larger than standard size lites on its new jumbo magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) glass coater at its Wichita Falls, Texas.

The Wichita Falls plant, one of Vitro Glass’s four U.S. manufacturing facilities, was selected as the site for the MSVD coater in February 2017, four months after the company acquired all assets of PPG’s former flat glass business in October 2016. The plant’s location provides the southern U.S.—the region with the highest demand for low-E glass—with convenient access to a full range of glass sizes.
