AGC and Kinestral Establish Joint Venture Companies for HalioJune 22nd, 2018 by Editor
Kinestral Technologies and flat-glass manufacturer AGC have launched two joint venture companies, Halio North America (HNA) and Halio International (HINT), to sell and service Halio smart-tinting glass for the building industry.
The joint venture companies’ focus on Halio will expand the market for smart-tinting glass, creating indoor environments that are healthier, greener, and smarter. (The construction glass market was valued at $91.7 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow to $138.3 billion by 2023, according to Zion Market Research.)
Halio tinting can be fully automated, and automation can be overridden with several manual control options: a mobile app, a wireless tint selector or a desktop application. Halio can also be integrated with many of today’s most popular building management and home automation systems, as well as cloud-based devices.
