LANSING — Gov. Rick Snyder today announced that Fuyao Automotive North America will invest $15.3 million to expand its operations in Oakland County’s Orion Township, a project that will result in approximately 102 new full-time jobs
“Fuyao’s expansion in Michigan tells global companies that our state holds great opportunities for growing their business,” Snyder said. “Michigan leads the country in the creation of new manufacturing jobs, and the jobs resulting from Fuyao’s growth will keep us moving in the right direction.”
Fuyao Automotive, established in June 2008, provides warehousing, assembly, repackaging, inspection, program management, engineering design and sales support services of automotive glass to North American automotive original equipment manufacturers. The company is a subsidiary of Fuyao Glass Industry Group, an international manufacturer of automotive glass.
Fuyao plans to expand its Orion Township operations by adding equipment to manufacture auto glass assembly parts. The project’s investment and jobs will result in a $1 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant from the Michigan Strategic Fund. Michigan was chosen over competing sites in Ohio, Alabama and Georgia. Orion Township plans to offer support for the project in the form of a Public Act 198 property tax abatement.

“Michigan is the undeniable capital state of the automotive industry in North America,” Fuyao President Chris Feng said. “I am confident 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.”
