AGC Asahi Glass has announced its plans to build a furnace for 11th generation TFT-LCD glass substrates at its subsidiary, AGC Display Glass Co., Ltd. in Huizhou Zhongkai High-tech Industrial Development Zone, Guangdong Province, China.

AGC has now decided to relocate a cutting-edge glass substrate production facility from within the AGC Group. This investment will significantly reduce the need for capital investment while maintaining the group's total production capacity.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the site today, and operation is scheduled to be slated to start at the fourth quarter of 2018 or first quarter of 2019.

There has been a large increase in production of TFT-LCD panels in China in recent years which has resulted in an abrupt increase in demand for glass substrates. To accommodate demand growth, the AGC Group has established a supply system by setting up a processing facility in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, and Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, and a furnace in Huizhou,Guangdong Province.

AGC has also decided to build an 11th generation dedicated glass substrate* furnace in order to address the anticipated growth in demand of TFT-LCD panels that will use similar-sized TFT-LCD glass substrates.

Under its AGC plus  management policy, the AGC Group is committed to boosting corporate value by establishing supply systems capable of maximizing cash generation and ensuring that products provide the pluses of 'new value', 'functionality', and 'reliability' to stakeholders.
