Operations resume after flooding at PPG plant in Wichita Falls
Some operations have resumed at PPG Industries' glass manufacturing operation in Wichita Falls, Texas, after torrential rains caused flooding and closed the plant temporarily Aug. 19, according to a company release Sept. 2.
Float glass line No. 1 and the magnetron sputtering vacuum deposition coater used to make energy-efficient, high-performance glass are operating fully. The tempering line is expected to be restored to service this week, according to the release. Restoring production on float glass line No. 2 will take several weeks with an expected return to service by mid- to late October.
