Autocar chooses Alabama for $120 million truck assembly plant

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey announced today that Hagerstown, Indiana-based Autocar will invest $120 million launch a manufacturing operation plant in Alabama to produce heavy-duty cab-over-engine trucks. The project is expected to create 746 jobs.

At a press conference this morning at the Birmingham Business Alliance, Autocar said its manufacturing operation will be located in an existing 1 million-square-foot complex located in both Center Point and Birmingham.

Autocar’s new truck assembly operation in Jefferson County will add a layer to the state’s robust automotive sector, which features Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and a vast supply chain.

“Alabama is a powerhouse in automotive manufacturing, and Autocar’s new heavy-duty truck assembly operation in Birmingham will add a new dimension to the state’s activities in this vital sector,” Governor Ivey said.
