Huf North America Automotive Parts Manufacturing Corp., a member of the Huf Group, began operation of its new painting facility in Greeneville, TN. The exiting factory was expanded with a 57,000 sq-ft addition to house the company's automated paint application facility, as well as plastic injection molding.
The new plant has the capacity to produce around 12.5 million door handles per year, according to a release from Huf North America. "With its five existing painting locations in Europe and China, Huf has become one of the most significant providers of painted door handles," said the release. "In China, every fourth vehicle produced there comes with Huf door handles."
