Auburn Auto Supplier Adding Over 50 New Jobs

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has announced that an Italian auto supplier plans to expand its operations in Auburn.

Ivey’s office says the $15 million expansion project at 2A USA in Auburn will create more than 50 jobs. The facility is a Tier 1 supplier to major producers of automobiles and heavy trucks.

Ivey’s office said 2A’s parent company is Italy’s largest privately owned high-pressure die-casting industrial company. It specializes in the casting of large, complex aluminum components.

Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield said in a statement that Alabama’s auto supply chain continues to “grow in scope and sophistication as companies such as 2A expand their operations in the state.”
