The AGC Group’ s core technologies are centered on “glass materials and glass manufacturing technologies,” “coating technologies,” “optics and electronics technologies,” “ceramics material technologies” and “fluorine and other chemistry technologies,” as well as “fundamental common technologies” that form the basis for these technologies.

Carrying out Seamless Operations Ranging from Basic Research to Product Development

In R&D, the Research Center studies basic, long-term, innovative, and inter-business themes, while the Production Technology Center and Engineering Center undertake the development of innovative production technologies and equipment technologies.
The R&D Centers of each In-house Company enhance production technologies and undertake product development in close contact with customers.
In 2012, the AGC Group newly established the Technology General Division that integrates the Research Center, Production Technology Center, Engineering Center and Intellectual Property Center and newly established Technology Planning Office, which formulates group-wide technological strategies, to carry out the Group’ s comprehensive technology-related strategies in a more effective and efficient manner.
