BeijingWest Industries Constructs Manufacturing Greenfield, Indiana, Plant

BeijingWest Industries, Co. Ltd. will start construction on the company's new manufacturing facility in Greenfield, Indiana. The facility will be the China-based company's first manufacturing site in the United States.

The company, a premier chassis supplier that designs and manufactures brake and suspension systems for the global automotive market, will invest more than $80 million to build and equip a new 274,369-square-foot manufacturing facility in Greenfield's Progress Park.

According to state officials, with its growth, BWI plans to begin operations in August 2019 and expects to increase its production by 4 million parts per year to meet the continued demands from its customers, which include Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, General Motors, Honda and Porsche.

BWI, a joint venture of Shougang Corporation and Beijing Fangshan State-Owned Asset Management, was formed in 2009 when the company bought the brake and suspension business of Delphi Automotive, which was once a part of General Motors.

The company employs nearly 5,000 associates across more than 17 facilities around the world, which includes operations in China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Poland, United Kingdom and the United States.
