SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers Expands Capacity At Its Moses Lake, Washington, Plant

07/17/2014
SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers plans to triple the capacity of its carbon fiber plant in Moses Lake, Washington.

According to the Inland Northwest Economic Alliance, the expansion is funded by an investment of $200 million, in addition to the previously invested $100 million. The site expansion, scheduled to be completed by early 2015, will make the plant in Moses Lake the world’s largest carbon fiber plant.

With the anticipated creation of 120 new jobs, the headcount at the joint venture in Moses Lake is going to rise from 80 to about 200 people. With the automated production processes, the expansion of the site in Moses Lake will make it possible for the BMW Group to apply carbon fiber material also in other model series in the future, at competitive costs and in large quantities, the economic group said.
