Mayor Gary Fuller, the Opelika City Council and the Opelika Industrial Development Authority are excited to announce an expansion at Car Tech, LLC.

Car Tech, an automotive parts manufacturer, will be investing more than $30 million for a new assembly building and adding another press line to the existing building. Over the next three years, 37 jobs will be added. 

“We are excited that Car Tech is expanding right here in Opelika. The project will improve the local economy and the job market. It says a great deal about our community when a business decides to grow and bring additional good paying jobs to our citizens. We are grateful to our friends at Car Tech and look forward to continuing a good relationship with them,” Fuller said.
