The expansion will involve a new production line that will supply parts for the 2018 Nissan Altima being built at the automaker’s plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. Topre plans to install the new press line and machining equipment on an extra press pit that was built with future expansion in mind. Construction is slated to begin in the coming months.
The announcement came today as Governor Kay Ivey and other officials visited the company’s Cullman operations to celebrate the opening of the most recent expansion: a $3 million, 42,000-square-foot multipurpose facility that opened in December. The structure is being used for storage and distribution.
“It is always a good day when existing Alabama businesses choose to expand,” Governor Ivey said. “Topre America’s expansion is a testament to the quality of our workforce and makes clear that world-class companies can and will be successful in Alabama.
