COLUMBUS–Senator Peggy Lehner (R–Kettering) today praised the announcement of 800 new, Ohio jobs being created in Montgomery County. The company, Fuyao North America Glass Company, will invest more than $200 million into the project.

The official announcement was made with company executives in the Governor’s Cabinet Room in the Ohio Statehouse this morning.

“Like much of Ohio, Dayton was impacted by the great recession in ways still felt today,” Lehner said. “Although we’ve made extraordinary strides, it’s easy to focus on empty factories like the one in Moraine as a reminder of the job losses we experienced.  Today’s jobs announcement is just one example of great things happening across the state, and it serves as a testament to the hard workers who make Dayton a world-class place to do business.”

The agreement bringing the company to Ohio was signed in the Statehouse today with company executives and Governor John Kasich. Fuyao is expected to purchase more than 1 million square feet of space in the Moraine plant.

Among the expected 800 employees the company plans to hire will be those skilled in production, engineering, maintenance, and management.
