Elkin Updates 

This website is to keep Vitro automotive glass employees at Elkin apprised of our ongoing furloughs and our planned schedule for return to work.

Elkin Staff,


At this time we have recalled many of our staff.


  • We have already attempted to call all Tempering employees back to work. 

  • Beginning 7/8 all Windshield hourly employees will have been recalled to work.

  • Value Add is running on a new schedule of three M-F 8 hour shifts.  We have attempted to recall all VA employees to return to work. 


If you work on the production lines and you have not spoken to us regarding your return to work, please contact us immediately. 


We hope to be able to return all of our team members as quickly as demand allows.  There are still some Salaried and hourly personnel not yet recalled.  If you are unsure, contact us directly.


Please check back further updates.
