MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – Fuyao Glass America extended their congratulations to Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar Monday after the filmmakers won an Oscar for “American Factory.”

Mr. Cho Tak Wong, founder and chairman of China’s Fujian-based Fuyao Glass Industry Group, said the directors “deserve the award” because of their “professionalism and strong commitment to their work.”
