Gov. Nathan Deal Tuesday announced that Carcoustics, a supplier to the automotive industry, will create 200 jobs and invest $6 million in a new Buford facility over the next five years. The newly created jobs will include positions in manufacturing.
“Georgia offers automotive industry suppliers such as Carcoustics the resources necessary to compete worldwide,” Deal said in a press release. “In choosing Georgia, Carcoustics will enjoy the benefits of a well-trained workforce, a thriving automotive industry and the nation’s top business environment. I’m proud to see yet another German company locate here in Georgia, as our efforts to build international relationships continue to yield positive results.”
The international Carcoustics Group model brings together a central research center and a manufacturing structure that provides proximity to major markets, allowing the company to quickly make new products available worldwide.
“We are very happy to have found the location for our new plant in the South of U.S. here in Georgia,” said Stefan Vallentin, project manager at Carcoustics, in a press release. “We have a great international transport connection here and are logistically well located between BMW in South Carolina and Mercedes in Alabama.”
