Takuya Shimamura
Representative Director, President and CEO

In 1907, Toshiya Iwasaki, the founder of AGC, took up the challenge of manufacturing flat glass in Japan, with the aim of making the people’s lives better and developing the industry of the country.

This spirit has been passed down through generations, and today, we are engaged in business activities based on the concept of “creating products to help society.”
The business environment surrounding us has been changing drastically and the demand trends for raw materials are changing as well. By leveraging the technologies developed over the years, the AGC Group helps people bring innovations through our unique materials and solutions.
