FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 12, 2017) – Gov. Matt Bevin today announced Federal-Mogul Motorparts LLC, a provider to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the automotive aftermarket, will invest more than $8.68 million and create 25 full-time jobs with an expansion of its operation in Glasgow.
“Federal-Mogul Motorparts has called Kentucky home for more than 20 years, and has been a dependable employer in Barren County during that time,” Gov. Bevin said. “This investment will allow the company to react quickly to changes within the industry, which is exactly the type of forward thinking that allows Kentucky to remain at the forefront of the nation’s automotive industry. We are grateful for this decision by Federal-Mogul and are excited that the people of Barren County will have these new job opportunities.”
Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ investment will cover the cost of construction of a 15,000-square-foot expansion of its existing building and the purchase of new equipment. The facility currently produces drum brake friction for OEMs and the commercial vehicle aftermarket. The upgrades will allow the facility to better serve its customers with the market’s shift to air disc pads. The operation, which currently employs 172 people in Barren County and surrounding areas, is expected to manufacture 1.5 million air disc pads annually.
