Fuyao Glass Exec Discusses Company's Growing NA Operations

In a Nov. 14 article from Automotive News, John Gauthier, the president of Fuyao Glass America, discussed the company’s rapidly growing North American operations. Last year, Fuyao purchased the Mount Zion, Illinois, float plant from PPG Industries and invested $200 million to restart one of the two glass furnaces at the plant. Additionally, the company is investing $400 million to convert a former General Motors assembly plant in Moraine, Ohio, into an automotive glass fabrication plant, according to the article.

“Our timing is good,” Gauthier said in the article. “There is a real capacity shortage with glass in the U.S. right now. We'll suck up some of the excess demand that the other companies are struggling to meet.”
