01 Overview

Vitro, the largest producer of glass in North America, was founded in 1909 in Monterrey, Mexico. Its markets include building/construction, automotive, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. In 2016, Vitro acquired the PPG Architectural Glass business to jump start their presence in the U.S. market.
