State Senator Peggy Lehner (R–Kettering) today announced the Ohio Controlling Board’s approval of $960,000 for public roadwork improvements in support of the Fuyao Glass America, Inc. plant in Moraine. 

Fuyao Glass Industry Group, China’s largest automotive glass producer, purchased last May 1.2 million square feet of the former General Motors plant in Moraine. The appropriation approved today by the Controlling Board will go to construction of new public roads to accommodate increased employee traffic to the plant.

"The action of the Controlling Board to release $960,000 to the city of Moraine is a significant step forward in the redevelopment of the GM plant,” said Lehner. “This project paves the way for the new Fuyao Glass America and the hundreds of new jobs that will be coming to the community." 

Fuyao’s $200 million investment in the Moraine project is the largest ever in Ohio by a Chinese company and the largest east of the Mississippi since records have been kept, according to JobsOhio. Fuyao plans to start production at the plant by summer 2015.

As a result of this project, 800 new, full-time jobs are expected to be created.
