TOLEDO STORIES: Owens Corning: A History
Thursday, September 22 at 8:30 p.m.
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 original "Toledo Stories" was produced to mark 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.
