Connecting the future

We look to recruit people who think of themselves as citizens of the world. This isn’t about languages, it’s an attitude.

There is strength in diversity of thought:

Diversity of thought breeds respect for our colleagues, their capabilities and cultures. It enriches our environments, which fuels our creativity that ultimately produces better products. The fact that we operate in around 30 countries across three continents speaking around 20 languages is both evidence of our diversity and proof of our strength.


Working at AGC is a big challenge for me. The decision I took to enroll to a distance learning program at university in order to be able to work for AGC has been one of the most important in my life. I believe I was right because in some aspects, working while you are studying is much easier as you are gaining practical experience and it gives me the opportunity to grow professionally much faster.

My educational background is Chemical Engineering but I got opportunities to work as Cutting Engineer, Quality control Engineer, Offline Engineer and Business control staff. I would like to say thank you to AGC for having given me those assignment with full responsibility and autonomy. So, I could acquire many experiences and useful knowledge. I believe that my colleagues are also proud to be a part of AGC.

Section Chief, Solar Industrial Business Center Rayong Factory, AGC Flat Glass (Thailand) PLC. Joined AGC Flat Glass (Thailand) in 2006

In the fourth year since I joined AGC after graduation from my master’s degree in mechanical engineering, I had a great opportunity in a large-scale project for developing a new plant for pilot production. I worked on the project with a full responsibility in implementing the entire process from budgeting through startup of the plant. I was really motivated and energized with the project and my colleagues. I believe that our engineers are quite committed to discovery of unlimited possibility of glass materials and sustainable technology evolution.
