Auburn, AL, Automotive Supplier Expands Operations

Seung Chang Airtech, Inc. (SCA) is announcing the completion of a 95,000 plus square-foot expansion to its manufacturing operation in Auburn Technology Park North in Alabama, according to WLTZ News Columbus.

The 214,800 square-foot large manufacturing facility will help the company respond to the growing demand for its products.

“Our decision to expand our production is the result of additional business and increased demand from our clients KMMG in West Point, Georgia, and HMMA in Montgomery, Alabama. Our Auburn manufacturing facility strategically places us in a position to grow our company, and provide additional jobs in the community,” said Dr. Daniel Yu, CEO of SCA.

SCA is also announcing another major project coming to Auburn. SCA has already began occupying a 20,000 square-foot facility in the Auburn Industrial Park where it will produce vibration and noise dampening materials used in the automotive, industrial, and construction industries.

With these two projects SCA will have invested $16.8 million and will have created approximately 200 additional jobs in Auburn.

“We are excited about the announcement by SCA,” Mayor Bill Ham said. “SCA became a corporate citizen to Auburn in 2004, creating 40 jobs. In the near future, the company will employ 400 workers. I want to congratulate the leadership of the company and its employees for this achievement,” Ham added.

The Auburn automotive parts manufacturer serves the automotive industry with black plastic injection molding parts and the assembly of heater and blower modules.
