Auto supply manufacturer to expand, add 450 jobs

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Gov. Steve Beshear has announced that an auto supply manufacturer in Bowling Green plans to expand and add 450 jobs.

According to the statement from Beshear’s office, Bowling Green Metalforming LLC will invest more than $ 261 million over the next four years at its facility in the Kentucky Transpark. It will be the sixth expansion for the company, which makes vehicle body and chassis assemblies for companies including General Motors and Ford.

The project will include new equipment and a 260,000-square-foot addition so the company can keep up with contracts for heavy stamping, robotic assembly and the coating of chassis and other parts.

Since breaking ground 11 years ago, the company has expanded its facility to 950,000 square feet and it employs more than 1,000 workers.
