SMI will process the glass and return it to Fuyao’s manufacturing process, allowing for what Fuyao called “virtually zero waste and a reduction in carbon emissions by up to thirty percent.”
“We are proud to partner with Fuyao. Through our partnership, Fuyao will operate more efficiently while also being a good corporate citizen to the local community.” Mark Nelson, SMI’s vice president of sales and supply, said in Fuyao’s release.
“We are pleased to be partnering with SMI,” John Gauthier, Fuyao Glass America president, said in the company’s announcement. “They will make a great addition to our Moraine location.”
“Fuyao and SMI are two highly revered companies,” Moraine City Manager Dave Hicks said in the release. “Having these two great companies working together in our community will be good for Moraine. This is yet another positive result of the Fuyao investment.”
