"The company is young at heart and has a long and proud heritage. Founded in 1998 and renamed in 2004, AGY is today an independent company with a long history of service to the glassfiber reinforcements and yarns markets. The business was established decades ago by Owens Corning and served for many years as the pioneer in several industries and markets. When Owens Corning decided to exit the business in 1998, AGY was launched as a joint venture that later became an independent company.
Throughout its history and transition to independence, AGY has maintained a commitment to providing the best quality, highest performing glassfiber reinforcements and yarns. Its principal markets are Aerospace, Automotive, Construction, Defense, Electrical, Industrial, Marine and Recreation/ Consumer.
AGY has more than 1,000 employees involved globally in the production, sales, distribution and development of fiberglass reinforcements and yarns. Manufacturing facilities are in Aiken, S.C., and Huntingdon, Pa. World headquarters are adjacent to the manufacturing facility in Aiken.
The company has a commercial and administrative office in Lyon, France, a sales agent in Seoul, Korea, and a business consultant in Tokyo, Japan. Additional support comes from contract manufacturing resources in Europe and South America."
