New $54M parts facility will boost Mercedes EV production in Alabama

VANCE, Alabama – A new parts facility planned near the Mercedes-Benz U.S. International plant in Tuscaloosa County is expected to add 373 jobs to the sprawling network that supports the state’s auto industry.

The $53.6 million, 530,000-square-foot project will primarily serve as a storage and sequence facility for parts used in MBUSI’s electric vehicles.

The automaker is in the midst of a $1 billion expansion keyed on electric vehicle production in Alabama, including a new plant in Bibb County that will make battery packs.

“Mercedes laid the foundation for today’s auto industry in Alabama more than 20 years ago with its groundbreaking line of luxury SUVS, and the company continues to reimagine and reinvent vehicles that are in high demand in countries around the world,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
