EFI Automotive celebrates the Grand Opening of its North American Headquarters
EFI Automotive’s North American subsidiary (EFC) celebrated two events last May: the grand opening of the North American Headquarters and ten years of production in Elkmont, Alabama.
EFI Automotive (EFC) was set up in the United States in 1995 in the state of Michigan, near Detroit, to produce ignition wire sets for the OEM market. Ten years later, EFI Automotive opened a plant in Elkmont Alabama to produce sensors for the Group’s American customers.
The new North American Headquarters of the Group in Elkmont is part of a recently completed 4000 m² expansion of the factory floor, lab facilities and office space. « A boost for collaborative innovation to promote growth », declared Pascal Auburtin, General Manager, who has led EFI Automotive in North America since 2004.
EFC is today one of the main employers of Limestone County. Patrick Thollin, President of the Group, said the company will be taking on new engineers, technicians and other workers to handle the expected growth, doubling its workforce in coming years (from 160 employees at the end of 2014 for sales of $28 million).
