Fuyao Automotive North America, a subsidiary of Chinese automotive glass giant Fuyao Glass Industry Group, was established in Lake Orion, Michigan, in 2008. Fuyao’s Michigan facility first stabilized successfully at a scale of 200 employees in Michigan, prompting then-President Chris Feng to offer that “the dedicated workforce, OEM network, wide range supply base and pro-business environment provided by the state of Michigan will support Fuyao’s further growth in Michigan and in the USA.” This proved prescient when, in 2016, Fuyao announced plans to consolidate and expand its Michigan facilities with the assistance of the State of Michigan, Wayne County, and City of Plymouth. Its new facility in Plymouth, Michigan, will provide automotive glass warehousing, assembly, repackaging, inspection, program management, engineering design, and sales support services, and will employ nearly 700 Michiganders. When complete, the Plymouth campus will represent one of Fuyao’s most significant facilities in the US.
