REHAU opens Alabama technical center to serve automotive industry

CULLMAN, Alabama – European auto parts maker REHAU formally opened its first North American technical center at the company’s manufacturing facility in Cullman, creating a U.S. site to handle research and development functions that had been conducted primarily in Germany.

REHAU said the ultra-modern technical center, staffed with 45 engineers, will enable the company bundle production, engineering and development together in one location. The company invested $3 million to set up the 12,000-square-foot facility, which was on display today at a grand opening ceremony.

“Our new technical center allows research and development functions as well as new design initiatives to take place right beside production while keeping jobs related to our North American automotive business in the Cullman region,” said Holm Riepenhausen, president of REHAU Automotive LLC. “This streamlines workflow and productivity while offering an increased level of efficiency and service to automotive manufacturers in the Southeastern U.S.”
