In order to consolidate its ARG activity (automotive replacement glass) in Denmark, AGC Automotive Europe is acquiring the distribution activities of the Dan-Glas company (Denmark). Located in Vibörg (Jutland region), Dan-Glas used to be a customer of AGC Automotive Europe and is specialised in distribution of premium brand windshields. It generated a turnover of € 2.8 million in 2016.
One of the biggest challenges facing the ARG industry in 2016 has been the rapid development of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in new cars. As an OEM market leader, we have made great efforts and investment to respond to these changes and gear up for future ADAS developments including, but not only, the arrival of autonomous cars.
A new pan-European research project* is investigating whether drivers are willing to share the road with autonomous vehicles.
We are upgrading our SAP system which is the main program currently used for our business operations. The transition to the new system will take place on Monday, 2nd January 2017. We are taking all the necessary measures to ensure a smooth and successful implementation.
