DENSO Celebrates Grand Opening Of Alabama Facility

Establishing the Montgomery warehouse creates 30 jobs.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Global automotive supplier DENSO cut the ribbon on its latest North American investment — a warehousing facility in Montgomery, Ala., yesterday. DENSO Manufacturing Michigan-Alabama Plant (DMMI-AL) – a $2.2 million investment –  is part of DENSO’s previously announced expansion plan to invest nearly $1 billion in North America in a four-year period.
 
“Since announcing our Alabama expansion plans in October, we have worked closely with the Montgomery community to revitalize the Smothers Road building into a world-class DENSO facility,” said Mike Bowman, DMMI-AL plant director. “Montgomery has been a great partner, and we are thrilled to have hired 30 people on the way to our goal of 45 new DENSO jobs here in Alabama.”
 
DMMI-AL is a 103,000-square-foot facility that will support the warehousing and shipping of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) units and other parts for DENSO’s North American customers. The $2.2 million investment included new equipment, personal property, setup and training.
 
This investment is part of DENSO’s expansion plan to invest nearly $1 billion in North America – more than $750 million in the United States – to strengthen and expand its product development and manufacturing capabilities across the region.
