WDMA Welcomes Corning Incorporated as Newest Member

The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) announced that Corning Incorporated is the newest member of the association.

The Window & Door Manufacturers Association defines the standards of excellence in the residential and commercial window, door, and skylight industry and advances these standards among industry members while providing advocacy resources, educational and professional programs, and ways for members to provide greater value to their customers.

Corning is one of the world’s leading innovators in materials science, with a 170-plus-year track record of life-changing innovations. The company applies its unparalleled expertise in glass science, ceramic science, and optical physics along with its deep manufacturing and engineering capabilities to develop category-defining products that transform industries and enhance people’s lives. 

Corning has created a family of glass solutions and process innovations designed to meet the evolving needs of the window industry and introduced Corning® ATG™, an ultra-thin, lightweight glass that can enable high-performance, lighter, and sleeker windows in a slimmer footprint. In addition, the company also recently introduced Corning® Thin Line™, an insulated glass unit (IGU) production line designed to manufacture thin triple IGUs with Corning’s lightweight ATG™ technology. Both innovations are enabling window makers to meet stricter thermal efficiency requirements outlined in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recently implemented program – ENERGY STAR® Version 7.0 – and offer industry leading products that can potentially qualify for tax incentives.  

“Corning brings its materials science expertise to the industry’s toughest challenges,” said Thomas Bertin-Mourot, innovation and growth leader, Advanced Windows program manager, Corning. “Our innovations come at a critical time for the window industry. We’re helping manufacturers efficiently produce highly tailored architectural designs and meet new energy and efficiency requirements. We’re looking forward to working with the WDMA organization to help the industry meet and advance standards and provide greater value to customers.”
