Eissmann Automotive, a German automotive supplier, is expanding its Pell City facility with a $3.4 million investment in new advanced manufacturing equipment for a new production line. The company expects to hire an additional 79 employees to support the expanded production.
“We have been very pleased with our experience working with the City of Pell City, the St. Clair County Commission and Alabama Department of Commerce. They have been wonderful partners as we continue to invest in Pell City to provide quality service and products to our valued customers,” said Tracy Breeding, plant director of Eissmann Automotive.
The company specializes in car interiors, built-to-print trim components, shifter modules and many other parts for German and domestic auto makers including Mercedes, Audi, Jeep, Tesla, Porsche, Volkswagen and others.
“It is always beneficial to both our community and the company when higher paying jobs with more advanced technology are announced,” said Stan Batemon, chairman of the St. Clair County Commission. “This is a testament both to the company’s ability to produce a great product and the faith they have in St. Clair County’s workforce.”
Pell City Mayor Bill Pruitt said of Eissmann, “They have always been a great partner in the community, and this expansion is great news.”
