In order to better reach customers in the Southeast, the company will construct a 196,000-foot facility as well as a separate training center and detached dining hall at 83 Anton Haering Street in the Gateway II Industrial Park. The new facility will manufacture fuel injection parts and other precision components for the automotive industry.

Some of the newly created positions will include extensive training, as well as learning German, at the company’s headquarters in Bubsheim, Germany.

Founded in 1961, Häring has steadily grown to become one of the leading partners of the automotive industry. Today, at its three state-of-the-art production locations in Germany, Poland and China, the company manufactures precision components and subassemblies to satisfy the demands of its customers.

More than 120 automotive manufacturers have invested more than $5 billion in the state of Georgia within the last six years. Collectively, these companies employ more than 18,000 Georgians.

In FY 14, the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) supported 35 percent more automotive projects than the previous fiscal year, creating an 11 percent increase in jobs and a 149 percent increase in investment within the automotive sector over FY 13 numbers.
