The origins of Carlex can be traced back to 1936 when Central Glass Co. Ltd., then known as Ube Soda Industry Co. Ltd., was established in Japan. In 1958, the company launched its glass business, followed by the acquisition of a North American architectural glass facility in Seattle, WA in 1974, and then opening its first major automotive glass facility in Vonore, TN in 1991 in partnership with Ford Motor Company.
Carlex has continually focused on one thing: a commitment to excellence in providing the best automotive glass products to its global customers. This has been a springboard as Carlex grew from the single Vonore facility in 1995, to the 2011 purchase of Fords former Nashville, TN float glass, fabrication operations, and the aftermarket business which doubled its North American footprint. Carlex doubled its size in 2014 by acquiring three manufacturing sites in Auburn and Ligonier, IN and Grevenmacher, Luxembourg.
