NSG Group announced today it has selected a location for its new glass production facility in the United States. The 500,000-square-foot facility will be located in Troy Township, Ohio.

The new plant will support the company’s plan to expand production capacity of online transparent conductive oxide (TCO) coated glass to support the growing solar market, as announced in May 2018. The area is commonly known as the Eastwood Commerce Center South. Construction will begin in the spring of 2019 and it is expected the plant will be operational in the second half of 2020. The new float glass line is the first in the U.S. for the NSG Group since 1980 and is expected to create 125 to 150 new jobs.

“Our company has a rich tradition in the glass industry and strong roots in Ohio and we are pleased to expand our U.S. glass manufacturing here,” says Richard Altman, regional director for Architectural Glass North America.

“NSG Group is one of the world’s most respected float glass manufacturers and has a long history of success in Ohio,” adds Glenn Richardson, JobsOhio managing director for advanced manufacturing. “Along with the Regional Growth Partnership, we look forward to working with NSG as they build a new advanced production facility and bring new jobs to Wood County to support the growing solar energy market.”
