Chinese business to revive Ohio GM site

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio’s governor says a Chinese company will build an automotive glass plant in southwest Ohio, bringing up to 800 jobs and revitalizing a former General Motors factory site.

Gov. John Kasich announced Friday the agreement with Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co. along with company and development officials in Columbus. The company is making a $200 million investment at the site in Moraine, near Dayton.

State officials said the plant is expected to begin operations in late 2015. The General Motors assembly plant employed 1,100 workers when it closed in late 2008.
