Mayor Tommy Battle announced today that Huntsville will be adding an advanced manufacturing company to its growing automobile sector. The German-owned, BOCAR Group, will be investing $115 million dollars into a new plant. The facility will be located on the northern side of Bibb Garrett Road, adjacent to Interstate 65 with construction scheduled to begin Spring of 2018.
The Mayor announced that BOCAR will be supplying the Huntsville area with 300 new jobs with great wages. “A lot of times when we start talking about these manufacturing jobs, we also have to remember that for every one of these jobs, 2.5 other jobs are created,” said Battle.
