With 38 facilities across eight countries and four continents, Martinrea International Inc. is a leader in the production of quality steel and aluminum metal parts, assemblies and modules, and fluid management systems focused primarily on the automotive sector.

The Riverside facility, which is the company's first location in Missouri, will manufacture welded corrosion-resistant engine cradles using its e-coating process, and automotive assemblies for the General Motors plant in Fairfax, Kan.

"We are pleased to open our first facility in Missouri, in order to better serve our customers. We have received a warm reception from everyone, and we look forward to becoming a contributing member of the local community", said Rocco Marinaccio, Director of Modular Assembly.

"It's always exciting for our community when a company new to the Kansas City area, like Martinrea, chooses Riverside as home," Riverside Mayor Kathy Rose said.
