Both companies are slated to jointly develop glass processing and finishing technologies to custom-build an economical glass material and supply channel for thin CRTs. In addition, Schott will have the primary management responsibility of building a final processing facility to be funded by both partners. In this way, the two companies will eliminate duplicate costs associated with cleaning and inspecting finished glass products. The first thin CRTs are expected to be delivered in 1998.
