On Tuesday morning, job seekers filled the Ponitz Center at Sinclair Community College to hear auto-glass manufacturer Fuyao talk about the company and its hiring process.
Rod Fielder from Urbana lived in Moraine and worked at the GM assembly plant when it shut down in 2008.
As refurbishment of the old GM Moraine Assembly plant takes place, new tenant, auto-glass manufacturer Fuyao, will begin a series of information sessions for people looking for employment there.
Wednesday morning at Sinclair Community College, representatives will be on hand to provide information about the company and help applicants file resumes.
The company is working with OhioMeansJobs and Montgomery County to launch a major hiring effort that will fill more than 400 jobs by next spring, and hire close to a thousand employees by year end.
The state of Ohio Tax Credit Authority has approved part of an incentive package for Fuyao, the Chinese auto-glass company coming to the former GM Moraine plant south of Dayton.
JobsOhio, the state’s semi-private development arm, says 800 jobs are coming to the Dayton area as Procter & Gamble plans to invest nearly $90 million in a new logistics facility in the city of Union, near the Dayton airport.
Last week we learned the former GM Moraine Assembly plant is getting a new tenant: a major Chinese automotive glass manufacturer, Fuyao is planning to redevelop 1.4 million square feet of the huge factory, and bring in 800 jobs.
