Fuyao Glass America, Inc., (FGA) is serving as a Gold Sponsor for Auto Glass Week™ 2015. The three-day international event featuring automotive glass repair and replacement competitions, educational seminars and an exhibition floor, is proud to welcome FGA, a subsidiary of Fuyao Glass Industry Group (FYG), which was founded in 1987 and is one of the world’s largest OEM automotive glass producers.

“FGA is a continuation of FYG’s vertical integration strategy in North America, adding float and auto glass manufacturing to our value-added assembly through Fuyao Automotive (FANA) and ARG sales through Fuyao North America (FYNA),” says John Gauthier, president of FGA.

When asked what made the company decide to sponsor Auto Glass Week, Gauthier says, “We are excited to have the chance to participate as a sponsor to introduce Fuyao Glass America (FGA), Fuyao’s first float and automotive glass manufacturing plants in North America, to the market. Also, Auto Glass Week is a great opportunity to network with everyone in the industry.”

“Gathering people across different spectrums of the entire automotive glass industry, from automotive glass manufacturers to the technicians installing the glass, allows for idea-sharing and connections to be built and strengthened,” he adds.

Mark your calendars now to visit with FGA on the exhibition floor, as well as all the Sponsors at this year’s event. Registration for Auto Glass Week 2015 is open and pre-registration discounts end September 8.

Offering some advice to competitors, Gauthier says, “May the best competitor win! We will be rooting for all of you and hope that you always think of Fuyao first when recommending replacement auto glass.”

The annual event, co-sponsored by AGRR™ magazine, the Auto Glass Safety Council™, the Independent Glass Association, the National Glass Association and the National Windshield Repair Association, draws attendees and top players from throughout the industry to the exhibition floor each year. Auto Glass Week will be held at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center and Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nev.

FGA will be displaying various types of automotive glass produced at “our world-class facilities which highlight our auto glass capabilities,” says the president.

“FGA will be providing premium OEM glass to local North American automakers and OE equivalent auto glass for the replacement market,” says Gauthier.

  1. I was shocked when FYG took North America by storm. I am equally shocked by how fast the Chinese manufacturing advantage evaporated.

    A recent Washington Post article summed it up:

    “a good that could be made for a dollar in the United States could be manufactured in China for 86.5 cents. One decade later, that $1 product in the United States would cost 95.6 cents to make in China – not a whole lot of savings.”
