Spain-Based Truck & Wheel Group Plans Vance, Alabama Manufacturing Plant

03/13/2018
Spain-based auto supplier Truck & Wheel Group today marked the opening of a new $30 million, 127,000-square-foot, manufacturing facility in Vance, Alabama. The facility will supply wheel assemblies for automakers in the Southeast and is expected to create more than 70 jobs.

The company’s highly automated facility in Vance will assemble, sequence and balance wheels for delivery to automotive production lines. This is the first United States operation for the company, which wants to expand its market as a Tier 1 supplier.

“Truck & Wheel USA would like to once again say thank you to the town of Vance and Tuscaloosa County Industrial Development Authority for helping make this project possible,” said Antonio Montoro, the plant’s manager. “Thank you for welcoming us into your community.”

“Alabama’s auto industry continues to be a powerful driver of economic growth across the state, creating jobs for hard-working citizens and opportunities for communities,” Governor Kay Ivey said.

“I’m excited to see Truck & Wheel Group locate its first U.S. facility in Tuscaloosa County, and I know they will be a great addition to our expanding automotive manufacturing sector,” she said.

Dean McClure, Chairman of the Tuscaloosa County Industrial Development Authority, “The new opportunities and new jobs that this multinational company brings to our county and our region will positively impact the area’s workforce and business climate for many years.”
