Designed for use in injectable drug vials, the glass is expected to improve storage and delivery of drug formulations.

As part of the deal, Corning is expected to expand its facilities and construct a new plant to support glass production with an estimated investment of $500m.

The collaboration is a part of the White House’s Made in America Week, as well as a planned $4bn investment that is expected to create 4,000 additional high-tech jobs.
