ORIZABA, Mexico (Feb. 20)—Avon Automotive North America, a subsidiary of Avon Rubber P.L.C., has begun production for 2004 model year parts it supplies to Delphi Corp. The heater and coolant hose will be used on General Motor Corp.'s W and Epsilon midsize vehicle platforms. By 2005, the plant should be contributing sales of more than $25 million in new incremental business, said Leeland Richards, managing director of Avon Automotive. To handle the new business, in January the automotive supplier installed a second extrusion line, effectively doubling its capacity, he said.
