German-based manufacturer Winkelmann Group announced on Monday they plan to invest $12 million to establish a metal forming operation in Auburn, Alabama.
The operation will create 50 jobs over the next 5 years and will be named Winkelmann Flowform Technology.
Governor Kay Ivey applauded the decision.
“As we declare to the world that Alabama is open for business, we welcome Winkelmann to our family of aerospace and defense-related companies in Alabama,” Ivey said. “The Winkelmann Group, with over a hundred years of industrial history, operates numerous manufacturing facilities globally, and we are extremely proud that they chose Auburn as the home of Winkelmann Flowform Technology.”
