Hiring to begin at Chinese automotive glass plant at ex-General Motors site in Ohio

A Chinese company is beginning to hire at an automotive glass-making plant in southwest Ohio expected to provide more than 800 jobs and revitalize a former General Motors factory site.

Fuyao (FWEE'-ow) Glass Industry Group Co. paid $15 million for the former auto plant in Moraine and plans a $230 million investment.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1GdI7jF) the company announced plans to fill 430 salaried and production workers by spring, with the first information sessions Wednesday at Sinclair Community College.

The company hopes to have 630 employees in place by the end of next year and eventually employee 800 to 1,000 people.

The plant will primarily produce windshields, sunroofs and side windows

The GM assembly plant employed 1,100 workers when it closed in late 2008.
