IAC Opens Expanded Manufacturing Facility in Alabama

Noria news wires

International Automotive Components (IAC) recently opened its newly expanded manufacturing operation in Anniston, Alabama. The 126,000-square-foot expansion, which was constructed adjacent to the existing IAC manufacturing plant, increases IAC's Anniston production capacity to approximately 262,000 square feet. The operation will also support the hiring of approximately 350 new associates, increasing the total workforce to more than 500 employees by 2016.

"Upon the creation of IAC, we committed our customers to establish operations near their facilities around the world," said IAC president and CEO Jim Kamsickas. "The establishment of this new state-of-the-art facility provides yet another example of IAC executing upon that commitment."

The expanded facility will employ numerous manufacturing processes to produce IAC's full suite of vehicle components, including instrument panels, door panels, flooring, acoustics and other interior trim systems for customers such as Nissan, Honda, Hyundai/Kia, Mercedes and others.

The expanded footprint is consistent with IAC's operating model and strategic plan. Over the past 16 months, the company has established a new global headquarters in Luxembourg, a new Asian regional headquarters in Shanghai, China, and a new European headquarters in Dusseldorf, Germany. The company has also entered the South African market, opened new manufacturing facilities in India and China, and substantially increased capacity throughout North America.
