Many manufacturing giants have come and gone from the Dayton area over the past 50 years. The last to go was General Motors Moraine Assembly in 2008.
But that was just one twist in the story of a facility that has been extremely important to the region.
It all started with General Motors subsidiary Frigidaire, which manufactured appliances in Moraine from 1951-79. Two years later, GM was producing Chevy S-10 pickup trucks in the plant.
Between 1981 and 2008, more than six million vehicles were built at Moraine Assembly.
GM Moraine Assembly was closed permanently on December 23, 2008, and 2,400 workers lost their jobs.
In October 2015, Fuyao Glass America began producing automobile glass in 1.4 million square feet of the former GM Moraine building. The site now employs more than 2,000 workers.
Fuyao is the largest auto glass manufacturer in the world and has the capacity to make eight million sets of auto glass per year.
