Corning Inc. announced early this week that it will establish its LCD glass substrate finishing facility, the first on the China mainland, in the Beijing Economic Technological Development Area.

The amount of funding for the project was not disclosed, nor was the completion date for the plant.

Corning announced in February its intentions to set up a glass finishing plant in China. The company has glass finishing plants in Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and the United States.

"We are pleased that we are able to make this announcement today," said Nitin Kulkarni, president of Corning Display Technologies, China. "We recently concluded a rigorous site selection process, and while each location had much to offer we reached the decision that the Beijing Economic Technological Development Area is the appropriate location for our finishing facility."
