Hella Expands Production and Aftermarket Facilities

Hella continues to expand its manufacturing facilities and aftermarket sales operations in North America.

PLYMOUTH, MI — Hella continues to expand its manufacturing facilities and aftermarket sales operations in North America.

The company recently doubled its aftermarket storage capacity in Canada with the opening of a new warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario, and also has announced plans to expand a manufacturing facility in South Carolina.

Siegfried Tigges, Hella’s national sales manager for Canada, noted that opening the new warehouse, with seven employees, demonstrates Canada’s importance to Hella’s North American operations.

“We can now import aftermarket components directly to Canada instead of routing them through existing warehouse facilities in Atlanta, Ga.,” said Wolfgang Benz, president and COO, Hella North America Aftermarket. “With this added logistical support we can further expand our Canadian operations and better serve the automotive industry in North America.”

Hella Lighting Corp. also recently announced plans to expand its York, S.C., plant by more than 50 percent during the coming year. The York plant supplies lighting components for Chrysler, General Motors, Ford Motor Co. and Mercedes-Benz.

“When our York facility opened in 2000, we expected it to grow to about 100 employees and produce 1.5 million units per year,” said Joe Borruso, president and CEO of Hella North America. “Today, we have more than 140 employees and expect that number to increase 30 percent or more during the coming years.”
