Germany-Based Moller Tech Expands Woodstock, Alabama Campus

03/15/2018
Moller Tech, an auto supplier of Germany-based Moller Group, completed construction on its 150,000-square-foot, $46.3 million, manufacturing plant at Scott G. Davis Industrial Park in Woodstock, Alabama. The company plans to hire 222 associates.

“This new state-of-the-art plant has been a tremendous effort for everyone involved,” said Dr. Gunther Schmidt, CEO of parent company MöllerGroup.

The plans is designed to manufacture interior parts for the next-generation Mercedes SUV’s that stem from a $1.3 billion expansion that the German automaker announced for its Alabama facility in 2015.

Mercedes announced a $1 billion investment in 2017 that will add electric vehicles to its production lineup, as well as a global logistics center being built near MöllerTech’s facility at the Davis Industrial Park.

“MöllerTech is a family enterprise whose roots date back to the 1700s, and I thrilled to see this world-class company open its news manufacturing facility in Alabama,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“Thanks to significant job creation, this facility will have a long-lasting economic impact on Bibb County while also positioning it for additional auto industry growth,” he added.

Bibb County officials said they expect MöllerTech’s manufacturing facility to have a major economic effect on a rural county that is just now joining in the boom created by Alabama’s growing auto industry.

“We knew this industrial park would be special for our community and that we would one day attract world-class companies like MöllerTech and Mercedes-Benz,” Bibb County Commissioner Ricky Hubbard said. “We feel certain this is only the beginning for this park, as opportunities will multiply for Bibb County.”
