Issues and concerns facing the specialty glass industry are creating industry-wide changes in products, processes, and people. By examining these issues and concerns and the directions in which they are leading us, we can develop a vision of what the specialty glass industry might look like 10 years from now. The industry of the future will be shaped by new products and processes, tighter product and process specifications, environmental and liability concerns, partnership in the workplace requirements, work-force diversity, and the effect of lower capital investments and increased process efficiency on the bottom line.
