AGC The Only Flat Glass Manufacturer Left In West Virginia

West Virginia has an abundance of natural resources that make it ideal for many industries, including the glass industry.

The state, and the Clarksburg area in particular, have a long history of glass making. We went inside the only flat glass manufacturer left in West Virginia.

AGC Glass has been in Taylor County right outside of Bridgeport since 1976. They have gone through many changes over the years; including their name. AGC North America has been called AFG and Forco Glass in the past. They survived the industry changes and are now part of the biggest, global glass making company in the world. Their products, the glass for windows and windshields on cars, are found world wide.

The manufacturing plant on Jerry's Run on the Harrison, Taylor County border covers 400,000 square feet with over 250 employees. Many of those employees have glass-making in their blood.
