Just over a year after moving into Allen County, Multimatic has announced plans to create up to 75 jobs by the end of 2021 and invest more than $22 million in an expansion that will nearly double the size of its facility in New Haven.
Multimatic’s plant, located at 2808 Adams Center Road, is on track to grow by an additional 111,000 square feet in 2019. The expansion allows the global automotive engineering and manufacturing company to grow its final assembly operations, as demand for the company’s products continues to grow. Multimatic expects the expanded space to be fully operational by the end of 2020.
Headquartered near Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Multimatic engineers and manufactures complex mechanisms, body hardware, suspension system components, body structures, and lightweight composite automotive systems. Multimatic also delivers niche vehicle design, development, and production for road and race car applications. In addition to General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler, Multimatic counts virtually all major auto manufacturers as customers. The company’s Allen County plant is its second in Indiana, joining one in Butler.
“We’ve had tremendous success since opening the New Haven facility,” said Rick Nafziger, general manager at Multimatic’s New Haven plant. “From the talented workforce, to the convenient location, to the strong infrastructure, choosing Indiana has been a good business decision for Multimatic. As the company continues to grow, the New Haven plant plays an important role.”
The company plans to fill a number of important positions, including production operators, maintenance technicians, robotic/controls specialists, and tool and die personnel. Interested applicants can learn more about Multimatic’s employment opportunities at careers.multimatic.com.
