CULLMAN, Alabama – Germany-based REHAU on Tuesday announced plans to invest $50 million in expansion project that will create 125 jobs at its Cullman County facility, which recently secured a contract to build exterior polymer-based components for Mercedes-Benz’s Alabama-made SUV models.
The growth plans were announced at an event held at the REHAU Technical Center to mark 25th anniversary of the opening of the Cullman plant, which got its start producing bumpers for the first-generation Mercedes M-Class.
“REHAU has played a vital role in the success of Alabama’s automotive industry for 25 years, and it’s great to see the company expand its operation in Cullman,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “This expansion and the 125 new jobs it will create will be vital to Mercedes-Benz’s growth right here in Sweet Home Alabama.
“This investment shows that the Alabama-Germany partnership has never been stronger,” she said.
