Corning opens Chinese LCD glass plant

Corning Incorporated has opened a liquid crystal display (LCD) glass substrate manufacturing facility in China.

It is located in the Beijing Economic Technological Development Area and is the company’s second thin-film transistor-liquid crystal display glass production facility in China.

Corning will provide melting, forming and finishing capabilities up to Gen 8.5 for TFT-LCD customers, including Beijing Optical Electronics (BOE).

Corning also has LCD glass facilities in the U.S., Japan, and Taiwan, as well as in Korea through its 50%-owned equity venture, Samsung Corning Precision Materials.

Corning said in 2010 it would spend $800 million to construct the  new LCD glass substrate facility.

The plant is located near Corning’s Beijing-based LCD panel maker customers to enable more efficient collaboration on projects of mutual interest.
