Warren County Auto Parts Manufacturer Expanding Production, Adding Jobs
An auto-industry supplier is planning a $10 million expansion of a facility in Bowling Green, with plans calling for two new production lines and an add-on to the existing building. KIRIU USA President and CEO Mark Kimura says the expansion should be done by the time the company celebrates its 10th anniversary this fall.
The Daily News reports KIRIU has 115 workers and is in the process of hiring 10 to 15 more employees to handle the increased demand for production that is a result of new auto customers.
KIRIU currently provides 100% of Nissan and 90% of Subaru rotor demands in the US. It also supplies GM and Honda.
