The International Headquarters for Owens Corning is a distinctive building on the Maumee River, stationed at the edge of downtown on the peninsula formed by Swan Creek. The company was created as a partnership between Owens-Illinois and Corning Glass Works in 1935 and spun off into its own company in 1938 as part of the glass making boom that was supporting the city. The company moved into the current headquarters in 1996 and the modern building has since become a staple of the river view.
