PFG’s Services, Trade & Exports
PFG is not simply a supplier of glass. As part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, our technical, sales and support resources are committed to enhancing the relationship we have with customers by extending the supply chain beyond manufacturing and distribution.
As the leading glass manufacturer and supplier in Southern Africa, PFG has considerable technical resources and expertise. These are made available to customers, who require assistance with glass specifications, glass regulations, application, performance and other technical considerations.
A critical part of the glass supply process is the way the glass sheets and pallets are loaded, transported and offloaded. PFG spends a considerable amount of time and effort to refine this process, to achieve its take out on time delivery and order fill rates. Domestically, millions of rands are spent on refurbishing grab devices (our own and our customers), refining the configuration of loading on delivery trucks, and evaluating the off-loading procedures of customers to ensure maximum with minimal breakages, during this process.
To minimise the risk of glass breakages during packing and transportation, PFG employs strict packing procedures. Advanced glass handling procedures at take out float and the take out plants, ensure that pallets are loaded efficiently and with the minimum delay. Individual glass sheets are interleaved and packed with minimum room for movement. Pallets are sealed and checked prior to loading.
