Autocar opens $120 million heavy-duty truck factory in Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Indiana-based Autocar today marked the official opening of a $120 million heavy-duty work truck assembly plant in Birmingham that adds a new dimension to Alabama’s growing vehicle manufacturing industry.

Governor Kay Ivey joined top Autocar executives and local leaders at a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning at the company’s operation, located in a 1 million-square-foot industrial complex off the Pinson Valley Parkway.

The facility will employ 746 people at full production and today stands at more than one third that number. When Autocar announced the factory in September 2017, the company said the average annual base compensation for its workforce would be more than $58,000.

“Right here, Alabamians will build on the rich history of Autocar while producing forward-thinking trucks that will continue to modernize the way their customers work,” Governor Ivey said.
