Corning to create 185 jobs in New York through Valor Glass investment
Corning announced an investment in Corning Valor Glass that will create 185 new jobs and support more than 380 jobs overall in the Southern Tier of New York. The new jobs will be located at the Corning Innovation Support Center in Big Flats and at Corning's Research and Development Facility at Sullivan Park in Erwin. Corning has been awarded incentives from Empire State Development, New York State's chief economic development agency, in the form of a $6M capital grant through the Upstate Revitalization Initiative to purchase manufacturing equipment and make infrastructure improvements; and tax credits through the Excelsior program. Developing and manufacturing Valor Glass in the Southern Tier is part of Corning's plan announced in July to invest $500M and create 1,000 new U.S. jobs.
