Client: PPG Industries/CITSA
Location: Tepeji Del Rio, Mexico

In a joint partnership, PPG and CITSA plan a major expansion to an existing OEM automotive glass production facility in Mexico. Their plans include a new tempering line, cutting line and major windshield bending LEHR (special type of oven or kiln used specifically for annealing glass) upgrade. The plant utility system is upgraded as well.

The STEVENS design team works with the client and its contractor on construction and facilities engineering, custom equipment design, automation, and construction management services. A few of the project highlights are the total facility layouts and equipment start-up that STEVENS provides.
