Corning, N.Y. — Corning said it will locate an LCD glass substrate finishing facility in the Beijing economic technological development area.
The plant will be the first for the company in mainland China. Corning did not disclose the cost of the facility.
The company said that Corning is traditionally first in the LCD-producing regions in which the company operates; beginning with glass finishing and then assessing the need for other operations at a later date, based on market and customer demand.
Clark Kinlin, Corning CEO for greater China, said, “Corning is fully committed to the LCD industry in China and to growing with our customers in this important region of the world market.”
