Major Investment by Corning Inc. in Harrodsburg, KY
The Harrodsburg plant is increasing its production capacity to accommodate the demand for its thin, durable, highly scratch-resistant cover glass, known as Gorilla® glass, which is used in portable and handheld electronic devices. Additionally, R&D capability will be added in order to explore the parameters and processes in manufacturing microsheet, an extremely thin, flexible glass to be used in next-generation electronic devices.
"We believe Gorilla glass sales will exceed $250 million this year and we are making major investments to expand our production and R&D efforts for this business," said James B. Flaws, Corning's vice chairman and CFO.
Corning's expansion will be aided by up to $4.5 million through the Kentucky Business Investment (KBI) program and up to $1 million through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act (KEIA).
