​​​WICHITA FALLS – A $55 million expansion project for Vitro Architectural Glass will bring about 50 new jobs to Wichita Falls.​

The expansion project will also include construction of a new 200,000-sf building on the site of the Vitro plant, which will result in work for local contractors. 

The decision comes after months of discussion between the company and city leaders and economic development experts as the two sides worked on a $3 million incentive package to help lure the expansion to North Texas. 

The Wichita Falls plant was formerly owned by PPG.

Vitro will install a new coater at the facility north of Wichita Falls.

The Wichita Falls City Council approved the incentive package for Vitro​. The Wichita Falls Economic Development Corp. previously approved the offer. 

The new machine should be up and producing glass by April 2018.
