US automotive parts manufacturer SRG Global has expanded its production facility in Liria, Spain, which includes the installation of a new low-emission painting line.
The Troy, Michigan-based company announced on 25 Sept that the investment supported its strategy to produce high-value coatings for automotive plastics and subsystems in Europe.
According to SRG Global, the expansion at Liria adds 10,000 square metres to the existing 45,000-square-metre facility and features a “state-of-the-art” painting line.
Sustainability and efficiency, the company said, were the driving factors for the new line, which features technologies available to improve part complexity in size, geometry and asset optimisation.
“We are committed to continuous improvement in energy efficiency and development of innovative technologies which will result in reduced air emissions,” said Jose Manuel Sanchez, managing director of SRG Global for Europe and Asia.
“This modern painting line is another step toward upholding that vision and illustrates our dedication to becoming a benchmark company regarding sustainability and long-term value creation.”
Located in the province of Valencia, the Liria plant employs approximately 850 people and produces exterior trim assemblies for various global automakers.
It is one of SRG Global´s largest manufacturing facilities.
