The AGC Group’s history began more than a century ago, when Asahi Glass Company took on the challenge of manufacturing the first flat glass in Japan, with a view to contribute to people’s lives and the country’s industrial development. Since that time, the Group has built up expertise and technologies in the fields of glass, electronics, chemicals and ceramics, while providing solutions to a wide range of industries, including the building materials, automotive and electronics industries. After the launch of its business operations in India in the 1950s, the Group expanded its business throughout Asia, Europe and North and South America, and its employees around the world have been striving for the development of local economy and society in each region. The basics of our business is to contribute to society through our unique materials and solutions developed using the Group’s expertise and technologies.

Today, amid a major shift in our business environment, we will keep the basics of our business in our minds and continue to create value, with all employees and management working as one team. To this end, we established the “Vision 2025” in February 2016. It clarifies our aspirations and vision for the Group in the next 10 years, and lays out the management strategies for realizing them.

As we strive to achieve our “Vision 2025” goal of becoming a highly profitable, leading global material and solution provider, we will continue innovating and offering new solutions that are indispensable for society. Moreover, we remain strongly committed to the sustainable development of countries worldwide with the hope of ensuring a bright future for our planet. The AGC Group will continue making positive contributions moving forward to meet the expectations of our stakeholders around the world.
