Apple COO, Jeff Williams, had an exclusive interview with Fox Business and shared plans for further development of glass technology at Corning’s factory in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The Corning factory has been there since 1952.
“Last week, we had a big announcement and we announced two new phones, and they, of course, feature Corning glass and are the toughest glass in any smartphone, and it’s developed right here in Kentucky,” Williams said. “It’s amazing, in the middle of horse country, you have … a range of people from skilled trades to scientists, right in the middle of this small town, making the best glass in the world. And we know that because we test it all.”
