(VINCENNES, IN) - A Knox County facility that makes glass-ceramic cooktops and flat glass for home appliances will be used as a new hub for military defense work.

Schott North America announced Tuesday that it will invest $7.2 million over the next few years to fabricate transparent armor for the defense industry, creating 150 new jobs in Vincennes.

Company Spokeswoman Katie McIntyre says their armored windows have been selected by Oshkosh to equip their new line of mine-resistant, ambush-protected all-terrain vehicles designed specifically for the rugged mountains of Afghanistan.
