HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Executives from global auto supplier BOCAR Group said Tuesday that construction on a new $115 million manufacturing facility in Alabama will begin in spring 2018, with production launching at the site two years later.
The 350,000-square-foot plant, located on Bibb Garrett Road just off Interstate 65 in the Limestone County portion of Huntsville, will bring more than 300 jobs to the area.
Wilhelm Baum, CEO of BOCAR Group and president of BOCAR US Inc., said the state-of-the-art facility will be capable of producing high-end structural aluminum parts for automakers operating in the United States.
“Highest technology, excellent quality and efficiency are a must. However, people are the most relevant factor for success,” Baum said. “Huntsville, Alabama offers everything necessary, and the plant will become a new member of the BOCAR family.”
