Swift Glass’s advanced technology can transform Gorilla® Glass with custom waterjet cutting and glass cutting, edge grinding and beveling, and even additional chemical strengthening for protection against extreme environments.

“We’re thrilled to add another top-quality Corning glass to our inventory of glass materials,” said Sheila Burke Reynolds, Vice President of Swift Glass Company. “Gorilla® Glass provides a high-end solution for our customers’ very particular industry needs.”

The Swift Glass/Corning partnership rests firmly in both companies’ long histories of innovation. Corning’s research has delivered social breakthroughs from the glass for the original Edison light bulb to the first low-loss optical telecommunications fiber, while Swift’s manufacturing technology has provided groundbreaking solutions in optics, aerospace applications, biomedical technology, and more.

Swift Glass provides more than just cutting, grinding, thermal tempering and chemical strengthening services. Its company-wide commitment to excellence ensures quality solutions from initial material selection all the way to final inspection and packaging.
