Huf North America Automotive Parts Manufacturing Starts Production At Its Greeneville, Tennessee, Manufacturing Plant
According to the firm for the purpose of process optimization, the facility will house automated paint application facilities, as well as plastic injection molding. The new plant has the capacity to produce around 12.5 million door handles per year.
"For around 75 years, we've produced door handles for the automotive industry, and in the mid-1980s, we were among the first to provide painted plastic door handles - at that point for Opel. Since then we've constantly expanded our knowledge of this technology, and today in Tennessee, we've brought one of the most modern plants into operation," says CEO Ulrich Hülsbeck.
With the new plant in operation, the Huf Group has the capacity to produce 72.5 million door handles worldwide per year for its customers in the automotive industry. "We produce door handles for vehicles from all prominent manufacturers, including brands such as Rolls Royce, Mercedes and BMW, but also for many vehicles from Ford, VW, Chrysler/ Fiat, GM, as well as Hyundai and Kia,” he added.
