Mr Mearns said of the visit, “Today has been a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into the glazing industry and how companies like Pilkington Gateshead are striving to help improve the country’s energy efficiency. Ensuring we meet the targets is vital, as is enabling homeowners to save money off their fuel bills.”
