Our heritage

The roots of Pittsburgh Corning go way back to the 1930th 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 next decades, the industrial group acquired an immense know-how and an extraordinary expertise in the industrial usage of glass as such.
