Every Pilkington product is certified and conforms to the same high-quality standards as the original glass. Our manufacturing process and products meet the highest quality standards set by the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers. We follow the OE standards and implement various control processes at every step from sand to screen up to our delivery.


A unique feature of our production approach is that there are no dedicated manufacturing lines for the aftermarket. Every glass processing line used for the aftermarket is also used for Original Equipment supply. This ensures that we always operate with the same original quality standard.
