AUBURN HILLS, MICH. (Nov. 14, 2:50 p.m. ET) — Auto supplier TI Automotive Ltd. has opened a blow molding facility to make low-emission, multilayer tanks in Chennai, India.

The 73,000-square-foot plant, which employs 80, is the company’s fifth manufacturing plant in India, and its first to make fuel tanks. The Auburn Hills-based company’s plants in Bangalore, Baroda, Chennai and Manesar make fluid carrying systems, including brake and fuel lines.

“India provides exciting growth opportunities for global suppliers as vehicle production and market demand continue to increase,” said Bill Kozyra, chairman, CEO and president, in a news release.

The company had announced plans to build the plant in October 2011.

TI Automotive is the 19th largest blow molder in North America, according to Plastics News estimates. PN estimates the company’s total sales at $3 billion, and its North American blow molding sales at $205 million. TI has 20,000 employees at 130 locations worldwide.
