Auto supplier Inteva Products LLC is planning a multimillion-dollar investment and creating 35 jobs at its technical center in Vandalia, Ohio.
The company, which makes automotive interior systems, closures and roofs, said in a Nov. 15 news release that the investment and additional jobs will support initiatives for further research and development of its interior systems, including instrument panels, door trim, floor consoles, surface materials and other components.
Inteva did not disclose the total investment amount, but said the project is backed by a $3 million performance-based grant from JobsOhio, plus additional grants of $70,000 from Montgomery County and $50,000 from the city of Vandalia.
“We are pleased that we can continue to grow and invest in our technology capabilities in Ohio,” Marco Vom Wege, Inteva's executive director of interior systems, said in a statement. “This investment will allow us to expand our in-house lab, tooling and equipment build capabilities, increase our local workforce and invest in new processing and robotic technologies.”
Phone calls to the company for further comment were not immediately returned.
Inteva opened the Vandalia facility in 2011 and expanded the site in 2016. The company, which is the former interiors production operations of Delphi Corp., has in-house compounding, injection molding, compression molding and thermoforming.
Inteva is headquartered in Troy, Mich., and employs more than 12,000 at 50 sites globally.
