Our heritage


Tessenderlo factory, Belgium

The roots of Pittsburgh Corning go way back to the 1930's in the United States.

Two American companies, Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company and Corning Glass Works, both leading companies in the American glass industry, founded Corning Corporation in 1937. During the following decades, the industrial group acquired an immense know-how and an extraordinary expertise in the industrial usage of glass as an insulation.
