Engineered Plastic Components Inc., a firm that manufacturers plastic injection molded products, will invest $7.3 million to open a 75,000 square foot office, warehouse and manufacturing facility in Leeds, Alabama, with plans to create 110 jobs in the Birmingham Metropolitan area.
“With our experience and expertise in injection and blow molding technologies with our appliance, heavy truck and automotive customer partners, Engineered Plastic Components has built our reputation as a world-class, high-quality, low-cost leader for American-based injection and blow molding,” company Founder/Owner Reza Kargarzadeh said. “We expect to continue this tradition in Alabama as a responsible social and industrial leader in the Leeds community with a staff that will exceed 100 employees at full production.”
At its Alabama facility, which will serve as the firm’s Southeast U.S. hub, the company will feature on-site project engineering and inspection capability, injection molding interior automotive components and complex assemblies.
“The decision by Engineered Plastic Components to open an Alabama facility shows that the state continues to be an attractive destination for growing companies in the automotive industry,” Alabama Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield said. “The bottom line is that Alabama offers a skilled workforce, a top-notch job training program in AIDT and a business-friendly environment. The state is also an ideal spot for companies to locate a hub for regional operations as auto industry expansion accelerates in the Southeast.”
