BAD SODEN-SALMUNSTER (Sept. 17, 2008) — Anvis Deutschland GmbH has broken ground for a 38,750-sq.-ft. plant in Togliatti, Russia, southeast of Moscow.
Anvis said it will produce anti-vibration systems for the Russian vehicle market at the site, which will have the option to expand up 108,000 square feet.
The investment will be about $7 million, and 80 jobs will be created.
The construction of the building, the set-up and initial operation of the technical equipment is scheduled for summer 2009.
Anvis has been awarded its first contracts by Russian automotive manufacturers, and the series production will probably start next August, the company said. Strut mounts, bushings and engine mount systems will be produced at the Togliatti plant.
