Why Choose Pilkington Auto Glass?
The Pilkington car glass is always manufactured on manufacturer standards for OEMs, who define the standards for the cars. Because the Pilkington Corporation is the only global glass manufacturer that manufactures windscreens, sidelights, and backlights on the same production lines for both car builders and after-market customers, Pilkington glass has the highest quality standards. The car glass is an essential part of the body structure of motor vehicles (automobiles, vans, buses, and trucks). Quality control is in place for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to produce a well-fitting part, and they are considered to be high-quality producers.
Though the global glass market is currently booming, North American and European companies continue to manufacture original windshield glass in countries around the world. Some of the world’s most advanced glass manufacturing facilities are now in Latin America, Asia, and Africa as a result. Whether it’s purchased from “here” or “there,” what matters is whether it’s good. Is the firm you’re dealing with a major world supplier with OEM quality standards? Does the installer have the proper training to ensure your safety and the safety of your car? The answer to both questions is “yes.”
