Post Time:Jul 03,2009Classify:Company NewsView:249


Asahi Glass has re-started glass tanks to increase its utilization to nearly 100% and plans to start operation at its plant in Korea in the third quarter of 2009, according to market sources.

Asahi Glass Fine Techno Taiwan, the Japan maker's subsidiary, indicated that all melting tanks in Taiwan are now fully utilized.

Corning, which has just raised its second-quarter shipment guidance on strong demand, has also been said to be running in almost full capacity. But Corning Taiwan declined to comment on speculation on capacity.

The sources said the current short supply of glass substrates may ease earlier than originally estimated.
