PGT Innovations (PGTI) has unveiled a new glass company, Triple Diamond Glass (TDG), which officials say will focus on energy efficiency, security and sound abatement applications. According to Virginia Business magazine, the $54.3 million investment will convert a former Rolls-Royce facility into a 291,000-square-foot facility in Prince George, Va.

PGTI officials say TDG will initially focus on producing Tri-Ultra thin-triple insulating glass units (IGUs) and Diamond Glass laminated glass units. According to the company, Diamond Glass offers “passive protection” for security and noise reduction. Officials add that Tri-Ultra complies with new energy efficiency values required to receive tax benefits under the Inflation Reduction Act and Energy Star Version 7 guidelines.

“The creation of TDG represents a major step forward in our company’s journey,” said Jeff Jackson, PGTI president and CEO. “This addition to our PGT Innovations family, along with its new customer segment and manufacturing facility, perfectly supports our mission to provide solutions that enhance people’s lives. We are excited to bring these cutting-edge products and manufacturing capabilities to other manufacturers, homeowners and the window and door industry while establishing a new business and approximately 650 careers in Virginia.”

According to Virginia Business, Virginia competed with Arizona to land the project. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Prince George County and Virginia’s Gateway Region to secure the project, the magazine reported.
