    US based auto parts supplier Nippon Light Metal Georgia (NLMGA) plans to build a US$50 million factory in north-western Georgia. Governor Brian P. Kemp and the state economic development officials from Georgia announced it last Thursday.

    The company, which makes aluminium automotive components, held a ground breaking ceremony for the new factory in Adairsville — about 60 miles northwest of Atlanta last week. According to Nippon officials the planned expansion is meant to leverage on the growing demand for lighter-weight aluminium parts for vehicles as the automakers across the globe are focusing on lightweight fuel-efficient vehicles. The facility, which is likely to be in 2022, hopes create 110 new jobs.

    “This facility is the beginning of our dream to manufacture aluminium forged suspension parts in the U.S.,” Nippon Light Metal Georgia President Katsu Nakajima said in a statement.

    “NLMGA is manufacturing the innovative products that will fuel the future of the automotive industry, and we are grateful that they chose to invest in our state,” Gov. Brian Kemp said in the announcement.

    It is to be noted that Nippon Light Metal Georgia (NLMGA) is an aluminium auto parts joint venture between Nippon’s North American subsidiary and ITOCHU Metals Corp. formed in October.

    “Congratulations to NLMGA as they break ground on this fantastic new facility in Adairsville,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Commissioner Pat Wilson. “This project is a testament to the strength of the automotive and manufacturing industries in Georgia and the collaborative effort between our state and local economic development partners.”
