Germany-based auto supplier Eissmann Automotive will invest $14.5 million to expand its manufacturing complex in St. Clair County, Alabama.
The expansion will include the addition of a 130,000-square-foot building and advanced manufacturing equipment for a new production line. The company specializes in car interiors, built-to-print trim components, shifter modules and other parts for automakers that include Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Jeep, Tesla, Porsche and Volkswagen.
Eissmann plans to hire 200 additional associates as part of its expansion project. It will also introduce a new manufacturing process that is currently performed only at Eissmann facilities in Slovakia and China.
Eissmann is making another significant investment in its Alabama operation, expanding its Pell City workforce and introducing new technology at its manufacturing facility, said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
