The AGC Group's history began more than a century ago, when AGC Inc (formerly Asahi Glass Company) took on the challenge of manufacturing the first flat glass in Japan, with a mission to contribute to people's lives and the country's industrial development. Since then, the Group has built up expertise and technologies in the fields of glass, electronics, chemicals and ceramics, while providing solutions to a wide range of sectors including the building materials, automotive and electronics industries. Since the launch of its business operations in India during the 1950s, the Group has expanded its business across Asia, Europe and North and South America, with its employees around the world striving for the development of the local economies and societies in each region. The basis of our business is to contribute to society with our unique materials and solutions, developed with the Group's expertise and technologies.
