02/2023: Based out of Hagen, Germany, Adler Pelzer Group (APG) is a worldwide leader in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of acoustic and thermal components and systems for the automotive sector. APG is represented in 21 countries with 70+ locations and employing 11,000 people. APG wanted to establish a North American hub that would allow them to reach more and quicker customers in the U.S. .
Location is Key: APG decided on a pre-existing facility in Oregon, OH, just outside of well-known Toledo as their newest North American site. APG is creating 80 jobs and investing $10 million.
The President of APG’s North American Business Unit Alberto Buniato: “We selected this location because the region offered a site that was ready for our company to start up immediately, and we definitely saw a favorable business environment. In our business, geographical proximity to OEMs is significantly important because we produce large components”.
Ohio is a U.S. automotive powerhouse and offers APG one of the nation’s best logistics assets.
The state is geographically located within a one-day drive of more than 60% of the U.S. and Canadian populations. Moreover, the state is close to other strong automotive markets, including those in Michigan, Tennessee and Indiana.
