Constellium Plans Manufacturing Center In Bartow County, Georgia
This project represents a $20 million investment by Constellium and an additional $12 million investment by developer Seefried Properties, for a total project value of $32 million, according to Georgia Department of Economic Development.
“Georgia has a strong business climate and an advanced technical education network to provide a skilled workforce for our operations,” said Eric Krepps, Vice President/General Manager of Constellium Automotive Structures North America. “We are grateful for the warm welcome we have received from the State of Georgia, Bartow County and a number of partners to help achieve our business goals .”
Constellium operates more than 20 manufacturing sites in North America, Europe and Asia. The company’s world-class technology center located in Voreppe, France, is the origin of its advanced aluminum solutions.
“Georgia has a long-standing reputation for attracting leading manufacturers in the automotive industry. In the last year, we have seen particularly strong growth in this sector with announcements from a variety of heavy-hitting suppliers. Constellium’s decision to locate here will put the company in a position to access this broad network and retain its competitive edge,” said Governor Nathan Deal.
Bartow County Commissioner Steve Taylor said, “The automotive sector, which is strategically important here, seems to do well in Bartow County in the midst of so many southeast original equipment manufacturers. We are fortunate to have a company of this caliber investing in our community and in Highland 75 Corporate/Industrial Park.”
“We are excited Constellium chose Georgia to establish a presence in the Southeast,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “We offer an abundant workforce, well-connected logistics infrastructure and an overall business-friendly environment, which we believe is a formula for success. We look forward to working with them to grow their business in the future.”
