Germany-based Häring, a leading global manufacturer of precision components for the automotive industry, will locate its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Hartwell, creating 800 jobs by 2025 and investing $54 million into the project over the next five years, Gov. Nathan Deal announced.
“When global manufacturing companies like Häring choose to locate to Georgia, it is a testament to the international reputation of our top-ranked business climate,” said Deal. “As our state’s automotive industry grows and manufacturing companies continue to invest, I am confident that Häring will find the support it needs to successfully serve its customers around the world and remain competitive in the marketplace. I am proud to welcome Häring to Georgia.”
The company announced it will construct a 196,000-foot facility as well as a separate training center and detached dining hall at an industrial park in Hart County. The new facility will manufacture fuel injection parts and other precision components for the automotive industry. Some of the newly created positions will include extensive training, as well as learning German, at the company’s headquarters in Bubsheim, Germany.
“During the site selection process, it became very clear that Georgia was the best choice for us to locate our first U.S. facility,” said Häring Managing Director Andreas Lehnhofer. “I want to thank the state of Georgia and Hart County for their outstanding support and commitment. We believe that Georgia’s workforce and pro-business climate will provide the tools necessary for Häring to succeed in the U.S.”
Founded in 1961, Häring has steadily grown to become one of the leading partners of the automotive industry. Today, at its three state-of-the-art production locations in Germany, Poland and China, the company manufactures precision components and subassemblies to satisfy the demands of its customers.
