Owens Corning was started in 1938.  They realized the potential growth of the glass fiber insulation market, Corning Glass, which had briefly experimented with glass fiber manufacturing in the 1920Ââ€Ã¢„¢s and approached Owens-Illinois with a proposal to join forces in the production of glass fiber. Recognizing the benefits of CorningÂâ€Ã¢„¢s knowledge of glass formulations, Owens-Illinois agreed to the proposal and the two companies decided to share the costs of glass fiber developments
