German automotive supplier Eissmann Automotive NA is expanding its Pell City facility

The manufacturer will invest $3.4 million to bring new advanced manufacturing equipment to its new production line. Leaders plan to hire 79 more employees to support the production for new orders.

Eissmann Automotive specializes in car interiors, built-to-print trim components, shifter modules, and many other parts for German and domestic automakers such as Mercedes, Audi, Jeep, Tesla, Porsche, Volkswagen, and others.

“Eissmann Automotive Group’s decision to expand their facility in St. Clair County is wonderful for our citizens and community,” said Stan Batemon, St. Clair County Commission chairman. “It is always beneficial to both our community and the company when higher-paying jobs with more advanced technology are announced. This is a testament both to the company’s ability to produce a great product and the faith they have in St. Clair County’s workforce.”

Alabama Sen. Lance Bell said the growing company is an important part of the state’s automotive supply chain.

Eissmann Automotive currently has 13 locations on three continents.
