Motus Integrated Technologies has selected Gadsden, in Etowah County, as the location for its new manufacturing facility.

Motus will invest more than US$15m and create 90 new jobs at the facility, which will manufacture interior automotive parts and headliners.

The site is close to a heavy concentration of automotive manufacturing facilities within the region and several current and potential customers.

The project involves the creation of 90 new jobs, with an anticipated average wage of more than US$20 per hour and a commitment by Motus to invest US$15m in construction of the Gadsden facility and related technology.

Construction of the facility is slated to start in the coming weeks and is anticipated to be concluded in mid-2020.

“The primary mission of Alabama’s economic development team is to help high-calibre companies like Motus grow and create jobs in the state,” said Alabama Department of Commerce Secretary, Greg Canfield.

“Motus’ decision to locate a manufacturing plant in Gadsden is great news for the community and for the State’s expanding auto sector.”

Motus’ plans for the new Alabama facility build upon powerful growth trends in the state’s auto industry. It will also allow Motus to capitalise on the rapidly growing automotive industry across the broader South Eastern US.

In 2018 alone, auto manufacturing companies announced new Alabama projects involving nearly US$3.3bn in capital investment and almost 5,500 anticipated jobs.

Motus operates a global manufacturing platform with more than 2,000 employees operating its five current facilities.
