McGrory Glass Partners with SCHOTT as National Direct Distributor of PYRAN® Platinum
The family-owned and operated company is now a direct distributor of the SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glass product line.
PAULSBORO, NJ— McGrory Glass, one of the largest independent architectural and decorative glass companies in the country, will now offer the SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum line of fire-rated products.

With over 130 years of experience, SCHOTT is a leading international technology group in the areas of specialty glass, glass-ceramics, and related high-tech materials.
“We’re very pleased to announce our collaboration with SCHOTT,” said CEO and President Chris McGrory. “Fire-rated glazing projects come with a unique set of requirements, and the PYRAN® Platinum line delivers what our customers need to safely realize complex design goals while meeting strict codes.”
“The giant sheet size – 51 x 99 inches – and neutral color of SCHOTT PYRAN® products is extremely appealing to customers looking for both life-safety performance and design flexibility at an economic price,” said Director of Performance Products & Key Accounts, Blake Whitcombe. “McGrory’s Fire-Rated Division has an established national presence, and becoming a direct distributor of PYRAN® allows us to meet the tough demands of project lead times with cut-to-order stock.”
