Metalsa to Add Over 100 Jobs at Owensboro Facility

Automotive frame manufacturer Metalsa Structural Products, Inc. will be adding 113 jobs at its Owensboro facility as part of a $36.5 million expansion.

The expansion is taking place so Metalsa can produce a new line of stamped and welded components.

“With three production facilities in the commonwealth, Metalsa stands as one of our largest automotive employers,” Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said. “We are grateful for this additional expansion and these new jobs. This will strengthen Kentucky’s economy and further propel us toward our goal of being the American center of engineering and manufacturing excellence. We welcome this growth and congratulate both Metalsa and the Owensboro community on their success.”

The investment will include robotic welding cells, assembly line robots, infrastructure, and building expansion to increase the facility's square footage.

The expansion started this summer and hiring is set for September 2018.

The company expects production to begin in March 2019. Right now, the company employees around 2,7000 people.
