International Automotive Components Expands Manufacturing Center In Anniston, Alabama
The 126,000 square foot expansion, constructed adjacent to the existing IAC manufacturing plant, expands IAC's Anniston production capacity to approximately 262,000 square feet. The operation will support the hiring of approximately 350 new skilled associates, increasing the total workforce to more than 500 employees by 2016.
"Upon the creation of IAC, we committed to our customers to establish operations near their facilities around the world," said IAC President/CEO Jim Kamsickas. "The establishment of this new state-of-the-art facility provides yet another example of IAC executing upon that commitment."
According to the firm, the expanded IAC Anniston facility will employ numerous manufacturing processes including, but not limited to, injection and compression molding. These, and numerous other processes, will be used to produce IAC's full suite of vehicle components, including instrument panels, door panels, flooring and acoustics and other interior trim systems for customers including Nissan, Honda, Hyundai / Kia, Mercedes and others.
Expanding and optimizing the footprint for IAC's customers and employees is very consistent with the company's operating model and strategic plan, company officials said.
