AMTEX North America Celebrates Ground Breaking
On Thursday, August 2nd, AMTEX, a Gray repeat customer, broke ground on a new 145,000 s.f. automotive plant in Jasper, Ala. This will be AMTEX’s second plant in Walker County, Ala. Gray will provide design-build services for the new facility. It will be 3 times the size of the current building and complete in Spring 2013.
AMTEX is a subsidiary of HAYASHI TELEMPU (headquarters located in Nagoya, Japan) which is a privately held company operating in 6 countries. AMTEX currently has 5 North American facilities and manufactures carpet and interior trim components for the automotive industry.
AMTEX first located in Jasper in 2011, leasing the Spec 4 building from the Jasper Industrial Development Board. Gray, a nationally ranked engineering, design and construction company, renovated this facility on a fast track schedule in a mere 3 months.
Currently, Gray has several large projects, mostly located across the South, that are underway or recently completed including a Michelin Earthmover tire manufacturing plant in Starr, S.C.; a Caterpillar, Inc. manufacturing facility in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; a Caterpillar, Inc. manufacturing facility near Athens, Ga.; a Siemens gas turbine plant in Charlotte, North Carolina; a Whirlpool plant in Cleveland, Tenn.; and multiple projects for Austal USA in Mobile, Alabama.
