The Reporter: Glass giant celebrates St Helens history with online heritage hub

The Reporter: Glass giant celebrates St Helens history with online heritage hub. “Historic images chart Pilkington UK’s almost 200-year history at the forefront of glass making and the lives of those who worked there, from the three wealthy founding families, to the apprentices and production line workers. The hub recognises the seminal contributions of Sir Alistair Pilkington, with his industry-shaping invention of the Float Glass process in 1958; now the world standard for high-quality flat glass manufacture.”
