Teijin Automotive Technologies announced the opening of its new topcoat and assembly facility in Huntington, Indiana. This new facility enhances the capabilities of the company’s existing Huntington facility, which include compression moulding, bonding, water jetting, sanding and priming.

The new 164,000 square-foot facility houses topcoat and assembly process to support the manufacturing of the Ford Bronco 4-Door modular painted roof programme. The roofs themselves will be moulded in advanced composites at Teijin Automotive’s 350,000 square-foot manufacturing facility located across Highway 9 in Huntington.

The facility, sitting on 30 acres in the new Riverfork West industrial centre, is an investment of more than $100 million including land, building and equipment. It will employ approximately 110 people when operations begin in June 2024 and will eventually hire around 200 employees, the company said in a press release.

“This new facility enables us to support exciting programmes like the Ford Bronco and gives us the capacity to meet future customer needs as the demand for our innovative, sustainable, lightweight components continues to grow,” said Teijin Automotive CEO Chris Twining. “Huntington is an ideal location for us because of the availability of skilled, dedicated workers, and the continued support and collaboration from the economic development teams from the state of Indiana, Huntington County, and the Huntington community.”
