Eissmann Group Automotive Expands Pell City, Alabama, Plant

A Germany-based firm that specializes in car interiors, built-to-print trim components, shifter modules and other parts for automakers, Eissmann Group Automotive completed a $14.5 million expansion at its assembly plant in Pell City, Alabama.

The company expanded its Pell City facility with a new 130,000-square-foot building featuring advanced manufacturing equipment for a new production line. The project is adding 200 workers to the company’s St. Clair County workforce.

“From the first investment Eissmann Automotive made in Pell City, the community and elected officials have made us feel welcomed and supported,” Claudia Eissmann, Chair of the Advisory Council of Eissmann Automotive Deutschland GmbH.

“Our facility has grown within the community and we look forward to continuing to work with the City of Pell City, the St. Clair County Commission, and the Economic Development Council for many years to come,” she said.

“Eissmann has found the right environment for growth in St. Clair County, where it has carried out multiple expansions that have greatly expanded its workforce,” Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield said. “Over the years, we’ve developed a productive partnership with this top-flight company, and we will strive to help it continue to grow in Alabama.”

“We are always excited to see our existing industries continue to expand in St. Clair County. The addition of jobs to St. Clair County allows our citizens to work closer to home and improves their quality of life,” said Paul Manning, chairman of the St. Clair County Commission.

“With this expansion, Eissmann has become the largest employer in Pell City, and we are excited to see them continue to grow in our community. We are very fortunate that they chose our community as their North American headquarters, and we hope they will continue to expand here,” added Pell City Mayor Bill Pruitt.
