Throughout the Company’s history, Vitro has demonstrated a commitment to developing industry-leading technologies through continuous research and development initiatives and investments. This fundamental, integrated focus on developing new products and technologies has produced a product portfolio that spans multiple industries, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, automotive and commercial construction. The Company also is a supplier of raw materials, machinery and equipment for industrial use.
Recently, Vitro’s acquisition of PPG Flat Glass and Pittsburgh Glass Works reinforced the company’s commitment to excellence in glass manufacturing, research and development and sustainability while cementing the company’s global leadership position in the commercial, residential, specialty and automotive glass markets. The integration of these entities into the Vitro organization strengthens the company’s portfolio with industry-leading brands and technologies, including Solarban® solar control low-emissivity glass, Starphire Ultra-Clear® Glass, WeatherMaster® heated windshields and doors as well as proprietary oxygen-fuel furnace technology for improved environmental performance in the glass manufacturing process.
As a socially responsible company, Vitro uses accountable corporate management and the framework of its Sustainability Model to exert a positive influence on the economic, social and environmental interests of its stakeholders. Vitro endeavors to always act ethically and respond to the short-, medium- and long-term needs of our stakeholders, operating under the framework of our corporate-wide Code of Business Conduct and Business Ethics.
This document provides solution guidelines for the situations where a conflict of interest may exist, as well as for personnel loans, use of facilities, materials and information about Vitro, work relations with suppliers, clients, competitors, and internal communications, among other potential conflicts. In addition, Vitro is proud to provide secure avenues through which all stakeholders can express themselves in the event that a breach of our Ethics Code is detected.
We are committed to transparency and responsible conduct in all levels of the organization.
