NSG Group announced today (Oct. 19) that it will locate its new 500,000-square-foot facility in Troy Township near First Solar’s Lake Township site. The area is commonly known as the Eastwood Commerce Center South.
The site selection is pending approval of state and local incentive packages. 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 125-150 new jobs.
According to the company: “The new plant will support the Group’s plan to expand production capacity of online TCO (transparent conductive oxide) coated glass to support the growing solar market, as announced earlier in May 2018.”
