The Group is one of the world's leading manufacturers of glass and glazing systems in three business areas: Architectural, Automotive and Technical Glass.




Founded in 1918, NSG acquired the leading UK-based glass manufacturer Pilkington plc in June 2006. Today, the Company has combined sales of just over JPY 604 billion, sales in over 100 countries, employing some 27,000 people worldwide.


The Group has major market shares in most building and automotive product markets of the world, with a broad geographic reach, enabling it to respond to customers whose Operations, particularly in the case of Automotive OE, are increasingly global.


We produce high-quality glass products that make an important contribution to improving living standards, to people’s safety and well being and to the generation and conservation of energy.
