AGC and Kinestral Technologies Announce Joint Ventures to Accelerate Global Adoption of Halio™ Smart-Tinting Glass

TOKYO, HAYWARD, Calif., & TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#greenconstruction--AGC Asahi Glass, a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals, and high-tech materials, and Kinestral Technologies, maker of Halio™ smart-tinting glass, today announced the creation of three joint venture companies that will sell, distribute, and service Halio to the global market. Formed to accelerate the adoption of Halio, the new ventures – Halio North America, Halio International, and Halio China – will be the exclusive sales and marketing agents for Halio smart-tinting glass in the commercial and residential housing industries. Halio China includes a third partner: G-Tech Optoelectronics Corp. (GTOC), a subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group. The three partners have been introducing Halio in their respective markets since the product was first unveiled in January at the BAU Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems in Munich, Germany. The joint ventures were formed to meet worldwide demand.


“Joining forces with AGC gives us access to a global sales and support infrastructure as well as decades of expertise in the use of glass in façades. GTOC meanwhile bolsters our manufacturing expertise and gives us access to China, one of the fastest-growing markets for smart-tinting glass,” said S.B. Cha, CEO of Kinestral Technologies.

Halio technology enables glass to tint, reducing glare and blocking unwanted solar heat – automatically or on command. Halio looks like ordinary clear glass until it tints, achieving its darkest shade in less than 3 minutes. Halio improves occupant comfort in smart homes and buildings while achieving the highest levels of energy efficiency.

“We are convinced that Halio technology is poised to transform the glass industry,” said Jean-François Heris, senior executive officer of AGC and president of AGC Building and Industrial Glass Company. “Natural light is the #1 most desired feature in office designs, but conventional glass requires blinds, shades, and awnings or architectural elements that block heat and glare. Halio gives people the best of the outdoors while meeting increasingly stringent energy codes.”

Jim Arnold, formerly senior vice president of sales at Control4 and DIRECTV, will lead Halio North America. Alain Jardinet, a veteran executive of AGC Glass Europe, will lead Halio International which will sell to all markets outside of North America and China. Halio China will be headed by Alex Jiang, an executive of GTOC.

E-Commerce is the Fastest Growing Global Retail Channel Through 2022

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#digital--Global market research company Euromonitor International released new retailing industry data alongside the second annual “What’s New in Retail: Emerging Global Concepts” report. This report highlights the evolution and reinvention of international retail, ranking the top-three new retail concepts across grocery, non-grocery, non-store and digital channels.


Internet retailing is the fastest growing global channel through 2022 at 73 percent to become a larger channel than traditional grocery retail. Within internet retailing, the food and drink category is expected to see the fastest growth at 80 percent.

“While store-based modern and traditional grocery retailing combined will remain larger, internet retailing is changing the traditional way of shopping for many products, but especially for groceries,” said Michelle Grant, head of retailing at Euromonitor International.

“It’s no surprise that now three of the top-five largest retailers in the world are internet retailers,” continued Grant. “JD.com entered the top five in 2017, making it the third e-commerce player in the top five joining Amazon and Alibaba.”

With mobile internet retailing expected to reach 50 percent of total e-commerce sales in 2019, retailers are looking at the next wave of technology to create new ways for consumers to shop.

Tao Café, a pop-up convenience store from Alibaba, ranked first place in the grocery channel, paving the way for cashier-free stores in China. Using facial recognition among other advanced technologies, customers need only their smartphone equipped with Alibaba’s Taobao app to enter and checkout.
