The AGI Group currently operates seven glassware manufacturing and servicing companies in Japan and, over the past decade, has built on more than 70 years of unrivaled expertise and experience in the field through a series of acquisitions in Europe and the USA. The group’s global mission is to use its passion for glass to continuously develop technologies that benefit society, and to provide an excellent service to its customers.
