AGC Considering Transfer of its Business in Russia

AGC Inc. announced it has started considering transfer of AGC Group’s business in Russia. AGC Group is mainly engaged in the architectural and automotive glass business in Russia.

Amidst the uncertain situation in Russia, the group had suspended investments in the country, including the periodic repair of glass manufacturing furnace, since March of last year. AGC has since been carefully monitoring the situation, keeping in mind its employees’ and customers’ best interests. It is the company's policy to select a party that will continue to operate the business, say officials.
