NGA Publishes COVID-19 Resources for Glass Companies

The National Glass Association is developing a series of downloadable resources for glass industry companies navigating the quickly changing COVID-19 situation in the United States. They include specific resources for glazing contractors on the job site as well as general industry recommendations for all companies. 

Float Glass is Essential
The National Glass Association fully understands urgent times require urgent action. NGA members across the glass and glazing supply chain are doing everything they can to safeguard their workforce, customers and their businesses in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ASA Resources from NGA
Through an alliance partnership with the American Subcontractors Association, NGA is providing complimentary access to an important and timely webinar from ASA. As our industry navigates the novel coronavirus, it is likely to cause increasing disruptions and impacts to construction material supply chains, business travel and labor availability.

Navigating Uncertainty
By Gareth Francey
In the glass industry, we are directly tied to infrastructural spending and investment which means that if people are nervous about the future, they keep their cash close and hunker down to weather whatever comes their way. Fortunately, this has been far from the case over the past decade with most of the largest growth in global glass happening here in the United States, from the country that saw some of the biggest losses globally just years prior.
