Asahi Glass Co. Ltd., Q1 2015 Earnings Call, May 08, 2015

Asahi Glass Co. Ltd. to Establish an Integrated Production System in China for TFT-LCD Glass Substrates

AGC (Asahi Glass Co. Ltd.) announced that it is to build a furnace for TFT-LCD glass substrates in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, having signed a Memorandum of Understanding for investment with Huizhou Zhongkai High-tech Industrial Development Zone on April 16, 2015. This will enable the AGC Group to establish an integrated production system from raw glass to processing in China, where demand continues to grow. In this project, AGC will transplant cutting-edge production facilities from Japan, which will lead to a significant reduction in capital investment. The new subsidiary is scheduled to be established in mid-2015, with operation slated to start at the end of 2016 or early 2017. To accommodate demand growth in China, AGC has established a supply system by setting up a processing facility for large glass substrates in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, and Shenzhen, Guangdong Province. The company has now decided to relocate a cutting-edge glass substrate production facility from Japan to reinforce the stable supply system and ensure the group meets demand in the Chinese market, which is forecasted to grow further.
