Float Pilkingtons' glass revolution by David J Bricknell

The invention and exploitation of the float process is 'one of the great process inventionss of the [twentieth] century' and its magic gave the world the capability of making a valuable, invisible product more cheaply than ever before.  This fascinating new book explores how it was the Pilkington Brothers, one of the smallest of the plate glass producers, came to be the dominant force in the world of glass, through a mixture of brilliant inventiveness, skill, bravery hard work and luck.

 

Float: Pilkingtons' glass revolution is a highly readable account of the invention, development and exploitation of the product that has transformed the built environment worldwide, bringing light, reflection and drama to offices, homes and landmark buildings.  Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the invention, this book is written by former company secretary David Bricknell and is a wonderful celebration of Pilkington endeavour.
