TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Global auto parts supplier Bolta Group today announced the opening of its new $48.7 million production facility at the Tuscaloosa County Airport Industrial Park, which will employ 350 people by the end of 2018.

State and local officials joined members of Bolta’s global management team at an on-site ceremony today to celebrate completion of the 200,000-square-foot facility.
