Local installer here in Colorado Springs. Windshield is holding up well. Was hit by a stone the other day and didn’t chip. So far, so good.
That is made by Guardian Glass , one of the largest OEM windshield manufacturers

It’s probably the exact oem product, made in the same plant, only without the logos. A lot of things are marketed that way.

I have a 2019 JLUR with 5000 miles. Finally received a replacement windshield after about 45 days, with one damaged in shipping. They replaced Friday night. First drive Saturday morning, about 16 hours later and about 16 miles into it, I apparently contacted a small pebble (barely detectable imperfection) and immediately got an 8" crack in my drivers view. I lightly tapped on it with my knuckle and it spread further. Same as the previous windshield, no chip, immediate unrepairable crack. This is BS. I went through 4 windshields (including original) in my 2012 JKU with 85k, but each windshield have several rock chips repaired. The current windshields are basically junk. I am afraid to replace this one with the current OEM substandard part. If I do, I will have to stay off the freeways in Phoenix.
