NSG Announces integrated global business organization
Following the acquisition of Pilkington in June 2006 and adoption of the NSG Medium Term Plan in November 2006, the board of NSG has now approved the top level organizational structure of the newly enlarged NSG Group, designed to create a truly global leader in the glass manufacturing industry.
The first phase in the strategy to achieve that goal is the establishment of an integrated Flat Glass Business. This new global Flat Glass Business will be set up with effect from 1 April 2007 and will include all the activities in the NSG Group involving the development, manufacture and sale of Architectural/Building Products glass and of Transportation/Automotive glass and glazing systems throughout the world. The Chief Executive Officer of the Global Flat Glass Business will be Stuart Chambers.
The Flat Glass Business will consist of a global Building Products Business Line, which will also be led by Stuart Chambers and a global Automotive Business Line, to be led by Pat Zito.
At the same time, the management of the other businesses in the NSG Group, the Glass Fiber Business and the Information Technology Business, will be combined as Specialty Glass Material Division under one Chief Executive Officer.
Also, Global Headquarters ("GHQ") is established by reorganizing the existing corporate staff and is to work as a head office and support function for the combined group.
