Covington will soon be home to an even bigger Nisshinbo Automotive Manufacturing, Inc. facility after the Japanese brake pad manufacturer announced it would expand the current location.
The new investment will bring 100 new jobs to Covington as well as a sizeable investment of $72 million.
NAMI has maintained a presence in Newton County for more than two decades. Along with NAMI’s business development center in Sterling Heights, Michigan, NAMI’s facility in Newton County produces high-quality friction materials for automotive manufacturers and develops environmentally friendly, copper-free brake pads.
The new jobs at the facility will include positions in production and administration.
Nisshinbo is one of several Japanese-affiliated automotive companies currently operating in Georgia. In fact, there are more than 500 facilities that employ approximately 30,000 Georgians.
The new jobs won’t post for some time, but stay tuned to Georgia@Work as we’ll be sure to update you once they go live.
