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 and four regions with more than 70 locations and 11,000 employees worldwide.
With an entrepreneurial spirit, APG is always seeking ways they can expand their mission and be more accessible.
Improving Customer Reach
As a leader in the automotive industry, APG wanted to establish a North American hub that would allow them to reach more customers in the U.S. APG sought a location that would enable it to quickly establish operations and provide it with convenient access to reach customers in both the northern and southern regions of the U.S.
Location is Key
APG decided on a pre-existing facility in Oregon, Ohio, as their newest North American site. It is located in Northwest Ohio, just outside of Toledo, and the new facility will offer convenient and cheap access to customers and suppliers. 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. Because of this, APG will be able to serve more customers in the U.S. using its
newest facility in Ohio.
APG has committed to create 80 jobs and invest $10 million in the project.
