AGC Glass has begun installation of its new coater

AGC has begun the installation of its new state-of-the-art magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition coater which was first announced in June 2017.

AGC Glass has reportedly begun installation of its new state-of-the-art magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition coater at its Greenland, Tennessee, manufacturing complex, which houses two float glass lines.
Plans to locate the new coater in North America were announced in June 2017. AGC expects production to begin in December.
According to a company release, AGC’s partnerships with the local labour union, Warren County and the state of Tennessee – which were an integral part of site selection – will create more than 200 new jobs and generate opportunities for additional expansion in the future.
