Glasstech Hosts Federal and State Government Leaders
June 26, 2009

The U.S. Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, and the Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland recently visited Glasstech Perrysburg, Ohio. The two toured the plant with Glasstech president and chief executive officer Mark Christman, who talked with them about the company's attempts to develop systems for the growing solar energy market using existing automotive and architectural technologies-during a time in which the latter two markets are in a downturn.

"The visit focused national attention on Glasstech," Christman said. "It also gave us the opportunity to discuss with Gov. Strickland Glasstech's application for funding to enable us to produce systems for demonstration purposes here in our Perrysburg facility."

"The governor was attentive and indicated he would support our application," he said.
