Focus on high volume automotive interior glass parts
Corning Inc recently conducted the opening ceremony for its Automotive Glass Solutions facility in the Hefei Xinzhan Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone in Anhui Province, China. This high volume manufacturing facility will enable the company to deliver AutoGrade Gorilla Glass parts for automotive interiors directly to automakers around the world as they incorporate more displays and technical glass into their vehicle designs.
Introduced earlier this year, AutoGrade cover glass parts widen the window to reliably and economically enabled next generation automotive designs, led by consumer demand for more in-vehicle connectivity and immersive driving environments. This milestone builds on the company’s decades-long leadership in the display, mobile consumer electronics and automotive markets.
With designs evolving to incorporate larger, curved and higher resolution automotive displays, there is increased demand for technical glass developed to withstand rigorous automotive industry standards, while delivering smartphone sophistication.
