The AGC Group's history began more than a century ago, when Asahi Glass Company took on the challenge of manufacturing the first flat glass in Japan, with a view 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 industries, including the building materials, automotive and electronics industries. After the launch of its business operations in India in the 1950s, the Group expanded its business throughout Asia, Europe and North and South America, and its employees around the world have been striving for the development of local economy and society in each region. The basics of our business is to contribute to society through our unique materials and solutions developed using the Group's expertise and technologies.
In 2013, AGC Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd, a regional headquarters of AGC Group., was established in Singapore. The company strategically coordinates and drives forward all AGC group business in the Southeast Asian region to support the development of local infrastructure. The regional headquarters also handles marketing analysis and sales of group products, aiming to contribute to regional societies with advanced products and services relating to people’s lives, environment, imaging, communications and energy.
