In the depths of the Great Depression, Toledo's storied glass manufacturers conducted a laboratory experiment and a new invention – glass fiber – spawned a new industry.

WGTE's new "Toledo Stories" production marks Owens Corning's 75th anniversary and the remarkable history of a Toledo company that grew and adapted throughout the tumultuous 20th century.

"Toledo Stories: Owens Corning" chronicles the company that has turned adversity into innovation, worldwide success and market leadership. "Owens Corning" is also the story of a great American city and the people who live and work here.
