Millville, N.J.-based Amcor says its glass tubing business, a producer of pharmaceutical glass packaging and glass products for industrial applications, has entered into a long-term agreement with Fremont, Calif.-based solar energy company Solyndra to supply tubular glass for its proprietary solar energy panels.

The companies will transact over $200 million of business throughout the life of the contract. As part of the agreement, Amcor will invest $4 million to expand its glass tubing facility in Millville, N.J. The expansion is scheduled to be ready for added production this fall, with full production expected to begin next year.
