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