AGC Flat Glass lays off workers

Post Time:Apr 09,2009Classify:Company NewsView:449

A struggling economy has left more than 30 workers at a local plant without a job.

AGC Flat Glass North America Inc. announced the layoffs last week due to a weak economy and lack of demand in North America and across the globe.

“Glass demand has been down and continues to remain weak,” said Christopher Correnti, a spokesman for the Alpharetta, Ga.-based company. “As a result of that we had to do some temporarily layoffs at the plant.”

Thirty-six people were laid off in Spring Hill. AGC Flat Glass has announced layoffs periodically in other locations with more than 200 people.

“It’s been a difficult year for not only our company, but for many glass companies in the industry,” Correnti said. “We consider these temporary layoffs, and we hope to call them back in about three to six months.”

AGC is located at 20400 N. Webster St. in Spring Hill.

AGC Flat Glass provides products for construction, speciality, solar and automotive glass markets.

The company has locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia and China.
