CORNING, N.Y. -- Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) today announced that Oklahoma City, Oklahoma will be the location of its newest optical fiber manufacturing facility. Preliminary engineering plans for the new site are intended to begin in the first half of 2001, with implementation pending full funding approval from the company's board of directors.
