Owens Corning and Taiwan Glass enter supply agreement

Owens Corning, a leading producer of glass fibre reinforcements for composite systems, has entered into technology licensing and manufacturing supply agreements with Taiwan Glass, based in Taipei, Taiwan.

According to Owens Corning, the agreements will leverage the company’s Advantex glass fibre reinforcements and the well-positioned manufacturing platform of Taiwan Glass to produce a mix of products for both thermoplastic and thermoset applications. The companies will continue to operate as separate commercial entities.

“The agreements with Taiwan Glass will support Owens Corning’s growth in the Asia Pacific region, beyond China, while also expanding our capacity to supply customers in Europe and North America,” said Arnaud Genis, President of Owens Corning’s Composites business. “Over the years, Taiwan Glass has been a customer, supplier, and licensee of Owens Corning technology. We are pleased to build upon our successful, long-term relationship with the announcement of these new agreements.”

The agreements with Taiwan Glass represent the latest in a series of relationships Owens Corning has consummated with Asia-based manufacturers that license its technology. These agreements have enabled the company to leverage its internal capacity, while also taking advantage of external assets to deliver Owens Corning products – tested using the company’s quality systems and meeting the same specifications as its owned operations, the company explained.

“We are pleased to strengthen our strategic relationship with Owens Corning.  These agreements enable Taiwan Glass to continue to satisfy customers through delivering outstanding quality and comprehensive services, and to contribute to the composites industry,” commented Richard Lin, General Manager of Fiberglass Business, of Taiwan Glass.

Taiwan Glass is an industry leader in producing yarns and high-quality glass fibre. Based in Taipei, the company is engaged in the manufacture, processing, and sales of glass products, which include flat glass, fiberglass, container glass, tableware and kitchenware glass, and touch panel thin glass, among others.
