MONTERREY, Mexico, June 2 (Reuters) - Two controlling shareholders of Mexican glass manufacturer Vitro bought a combined 3 percent of the company's shares on Tuesday, Vitro said in a statement.

Chairman Adrian Sada Gonzalez and Chief Executive Officer Adrian Sada Cueva each bought 7,250,000 shares on the market, the statement said. They agreed last month to buy almost 10 percent of Vitro shares from other board members.

The total holdings of the two after the purchases were unclear.

Later, the company said the trust for Vitro's pension fund had bought 20,100,000 shares - about 4.2 percent of the total.

The Monterrey-based company's shares were up 1.5 percent to 42.6 pesos. (Reporting by Gabriela Lopez; Writing by Max De Haldevang; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
