In its determination to expand in North America, Volkswagen AG is pulling a key supplier along with it.
Gestamp Automocion announced plans last week to expand its stamping plant in Chattanooga to produce body panels, hot-stamped steel parts and chassis components for Volkswagen's new midsize SUV, which will enter production in 2016.
Gestamp's $180 million expansion will add 510 jobs and triple production in Chattanooga. It also will give Gestamp a new North American product line -- chassis components -- to supplement its production of body panels and hot-stamped parts.
Chattanooga "will serve as a beachhead for the introduction of chassis products in North America," said Jeff Wilson, chief of Gestamp's North American operations.
