History of NSG 

The NSG Group, formerly known as the Nippon Sheet Glass Company, is a global leader in glass production and technology. The company's history dates back to 1918 when it was founded in Japan as a manufacturer of sheet glass. Over the years, we have expanded our operations and diversified our product range to become a major player in the glass industry worldwide.

One significant milestone in the company's history was the acquisition of Pilkington plc in 2006. Pilkington, a British glass manufacturer with a rich history of its own, was established in 1826. The acquisition of Pilkington allowed NSG Group to greatly expand its global footprint and product offerings. Pilkington brought with it a wealth of expertise in automotive and architectural glass, enhancing NSG Group's capabilities and market presence in these key sectors.

Today, NSG Group operates in more than 30 countries and has a diverse portfolio of glass products catering to various industries such as construction, automotive, and specialty glass applications. The company continues to innovate in glass manufacturing and technology, focusing on sustainability and energy efficiency. With a strong heritage and a commitment to excellence, NSG Group remains at the forefront of the global glass industry, shaping the future of this essential material.
