AGP E-Glass Plans Canton, Michigan, North American Tech Center

09/07/2021
AGP E-Glass Co., a subsidiary of AGP Group, a Belgium-based manufacturer of glass products for the automotive, marine, and security markets, plans to establish a North American Tech Center in the Charter Township of Canton, Michigan. The roughly $15 million project is expected to create 71 jobs.

The company has been awarded a $550,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant to support this expansion in Canton. In addition, Canton Charter Township has offered a 50-percent property tax abatement in support of the project.

According to state officials, “with the auto industry continuing to experience increased demand in electrification, connectivity, shared mobility, autonomous driving and performance, AGP plans to establish a North American Tech Center in the Charter Township of Canton, where it will develop and exhibit the latest technologies for clients, partners, suppliers and university officials to see the products in use."

AGP provides high-tech glazing solutions to more than 20 automotive brands that are shaping the future of mobility through electrification and autonomous driving. The tech center will continue to grow Michigan’s mobility and electric vehicle sectors and will further underscore the state’s leadership position in mobility and automotive R&D, state officials said.
