Louisville location will serve as auto supplier’s seventh U.S. site and adds 250 Jobs to the state’s automotive industry
01/2023: Gov. Andy Beshear joined in mid-2022 officials from Louisville, KY and Purem by Eberspaecher representatives to celebrate the opening of the automotive supplier’s Louisville operation, which is expected to create close to 250 quality jobs and will serve as the company’s seventh site in the United States.
“Kentucky’s automotive industry continues to see incredible momentum and remains one of our state’s most important sectors,” Gov. Beshear said. “This can only happen because of companies such as Purem by Eberspaecher are committing to the commonwealth and our workforce. The official opening is an incredible achievement not just for Eberspaecher, but for Louisville and our automotive sector statewide. I am thrilled to celebrate this exciting step and I look forward to Eberspaecher’s success for many years to come.”
Purem by Eberspaecher will occupy over 180,000 square feet of an existing 314,500-square-foot facility at 7001 Greenbelt Highway in the Louisville Riverport, to serve its recently expanded customer base in the United States. The new facility also will allow the company to increase its focus on environmental protection, safety and comfort across its products, which includes diesel exhaust aftertreatment systems for passenger vehicles.
“Louisville was the place of choice because of the convincing logistical location on the one hand,” said Purem by Eberspaecher Co-CEO Volker Cwielong. “On the other hand, the cooperation with
the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the City of Louisville was characterized by openness and commitment. We are really looking forward to the successful production start of our new Purem by Eberspaecher site.”
Purem by Eberspaecher is a subsidiary of the Esslingen-based Eberspaecher Group. To achieve clean and quiet mobility, around 7,100 employees develop and produce exhaust and acoustic systems for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and off-road vehicles. The technologies make a significant contribution to meeting the strictest emission standards and noise guidelines. Its customer base includes the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers.
