Fuyao Glass Industry Group recently confirmed the company’s plans to purchase land for a new distribution center to be located in Moraine, Ohio.
Fuyao is a Chinese auto glass maker and one of the largest glass manufacturers in the Dayton, Ohio, area.
“We have in our immediate business plan to set up a new distribution center to provide more expeditious supply to our customers in the United States,” Lei Shi, Fuyao spokeswoman, said to the Dayton Daily News.
Fuyao’s current Ohio location is just under 2 million square feet. The company stated it has a continued commitment to its North American facility’s future success. It also plans to purchase several acres of land for a new warehouse.
“It’s better to buy the land now. I think in the future we’ll have more difficulty buying the land,” Jeff Liu, Fuyao Glass America president, said in an interview with the Dayton Daily News.
A Fuyao spokesperson stated the company will give an update on its projects when more details become available.
