LANSING, Mich., Aug. 31, 2021 — Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer joined the Michigan Economic Development Corp. to announce that AGP E-Glass Co. is building a North American Tech Center in Canton, where it plans to develop and exhibit it’s latest automotive glass technologies. In addition to the 31 employees AGP already has in Michigan, this expansion will bring an investment of $11-$15 million and an additional 71 high-wage jobs to the area. In response to the announcement, Rep. Ranjeev Puri (D-Canton), who spent eight years working in Detroit’s automotive industry developing innovative solutions to help prepare Michigan for the economy of tomorrow, issued the following statement:


“AGP’s expansion into Canton is emblematic of Michigan’s long and storied relationship with the automotive industry. This announcement not only brings good, high-paying jobs to the community, but it represents a new way forward for both the industry and Michigan — electric and autonomous vehicles. As an appointee to Governor Whitmer’s Council on Future Mobility and Electrification, I am focused on ensuring that Michigan continues to be an epicenter of future transportation solutions around mobility and electrification. Michigan has often paved a path for automotive revolutions, and with the expansion of AGP’s E-Glass division, I believe we can once again lead the way.”
