01/11/2018
AGC Glass North America, one of the largest manufacturers of glass and glass-related products in North America , will expand its operations Church Hill, Tennessee. The glass manufacturer will invest $40.6 million and create 85 new jobs in Hawkins County.

Part of the AGC Group, the company plans to add more than 100,000 additional square-feet of manufacturing space to its existing facility in Hawkins County. With this expansion, the company will also install a state-of-the-art MSVD coater at its Church Hill complex to serve the residential and commercial glass markets.

“Our Church Hill, Tennessee facility has two flat glass lines that will support this innovative coater. As the world’s largest glass manufacturer, this investment in North America allows us to expand the industry’s largest product offering and continue to augment our world-class service that is second to none,” Mike Antonucci, Regional President for AGC Glass North America, said. “Our new coater will provide architects, planners, engineers and developers the ability to create tomorrow’s environment.”

“I want to thank AGC for creating more than 80 new jobs and investing over $40 million in Hawkins County,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “AGC is one of Hawkins County’s largest employers and I appreciate the company for continuing to invest in Church Hill and its commitment to our state. I look forward to seeing the company continue to excel in Hawkins County and Tennessee.”

“AGC has been the largest employer for Hawkins County since its existence in 1962. I would like to thank AGC for its continued support for Hawkins County,” Hawkins County IDB Chairman Larry Elkins said. “With several options available, AGC chose this site for its expansion. We are extremely grateful for the company’s continued investment as AGC continues to be the premier provider of jobs and economic opportunities in Hawkins County.”
