Truck & Wheel Group opens $30 million Alabama wheel assembly plant

VANCE, Alabama – Spain-based auto supplier Truck & Wheel Group today marked the opening of a new 127,000-square-foot manufacturing facility that will supply wheel assemblies for automakers in the Southeast.

The company’s executive management team joined Gov. Kay Ivey, Mercedes-Benz’s Alabama operations chief Jason Hoff and community leaders at a grand opening ceremony for the Alabama facility this afternoon. The $30 million project will create more than 70 jobs.

“Truck & Wheel USA would like to once again say thank you to the town of Vance and Tuscaloosa County Industrial Development Authority for helping make this project possible,” said Antonio Montoro, the plant’s manager. “Thank you for welcoming us into your community.”

The company’s highly automated facility in Vance will assemble, sequence and balance wheels for delivery to automotive production lines. This is the first U.S. operation for the company, which wants to expand its market as a Tier 1 supplier.
