The founder of Fuyao Group, Cho Tak Wong, made international headlines when he announced in 2014 to open an auto glass operation in the former GM plant in Moraine, Ohio. “(T)he local people deeply impressed me,” Cho told the Dayton Business Journal. “The attendants there made us feel warmly welcome…we felt very much pleased and comfortable.”
