Dutch-based Inalfa Roof Systems, a leading global provider of vehicle roof systems, will expand its recently completed 165,000-square-foot regional headquarters in southwest Cherokee County, Georgia
, by an additional 45,000 square feet. The company will invest an additional $6 million and create 100 new jobs in addition to the 300 already announced in June 2013.
The southwest Cherokee facility is strategically located off I-75 at Cherokee 75 Corporate Park, and is in close proximity to automotive
manufacturers located throughout the Southeast. With this expansion, a new business unit will be added that vertically integrates a bi-processed injection molding operation to place black lining around the Inalfa sunroofs.
“With this significant expansion, it’s clear that Cherokee County is an ideal location for Inalfa Roof Systems,” said Governor Nathan Deal
. “In its relatively short time in Georgia, Inalfa Roof Systems has proven to be a true team player for economic development in the region. This expansion demonstrates the company’s confidence in our No. 1 business climate.”
Mary Ellen McClanahan, Metro Atlanta Project Manager at the Georgia Department of Economic Development
, and the Cherokee Office of Economic Development assisted the company with the expansion.
“Inalfa is a great example of a company that’s been able to make the most of all that Cherokee County has to offer,” said COED Chairman Marshall Day. “We recognize the importance of existing industry and will continue to be an advocate for them for years to come.”
“This expansion is a sure sign that companies who choose Georgia to locate to will grow within our state,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “In just a few short months, Inalfa Roof Systems has experienced success – this is a strong testimony to the high-quality workforce
and pro-business resources that Georgia provides.”
