AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has announced that an Italian auto supplier plans to expand its operation in Auburn.
Ivey’s office said Tuesday that the $15 million expansion project at 2A USA in Auburn will create more than 50 jobs. The facility is a Tier 1 supplier to major producers of automobiles and heavy trucks.
Ivey’s office said 2A’s parent company is Italy’s biggest privately owned high-pressure die-casting industrial company. It specializes in the casting of large, complex aluminum components.
Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield said in a statement that Alabama’s auto supply chain continues to “grow in scope and sophistication as companies such as 2A expand their operations in the state.”
