NSG Names New President

July 26, 2011

Clement Miller has been named as president of building products for NSG Group. The manufacturer of glass products with operations worldwide operates the unit under the Pilkington name.

In his new role, Miller is charged with ensuring sustained growth for the building products business of NSG Group across key emerging markets, while also building on its existing position in more established markets.

A German citizen, Miller joined Pilkington plc in 1992. He has managed the group's fire protection and solar energy businesses and was appointed managing director for Building Products Europe in 2007. Since 2010, he has been VP of commercial and solar energy products. Miller succeeds Mark Lyons, who has been appointed CFO for the group.

NSG Group Building Products supplies glass for architectural and technical applications, as well as for the growing solar energy sector. With experience across the various sectors, Miller intimately understands the growth opportunities the company is able to pursue and firmly believes NSG Group glass products will become increasingly relevant in helping address the causes of climate change,officials note.

“Irrespective of whether it’s driven through government policy or consumers wanting to save money on their energy bills, the energy efficiency of our buildings is now firmly on the agenda," Miller states. "NSG Group plays a key role in delivering on this agenda, by offering a comprehensive range of glass products specifically designed to enhance thermal performance of buildings new and old alike.”

Miller also highlights the contribution glass products can make in generating energy: “Our high performance glass ranges are a key component of the solar panels being used to generate renewable energy all over the world. With solar subsidies becoming more widely available as governments recognize their value in shifting to greener energy generation, the market for solar products is likely to grow dramatically over the coming years, and the NSG Group is well placed to meet this demand in all markets.”
