Metaldyne, LLC, headquartered in Plymouth, Michigan, USA, has announced that it is expanding its Bluffton, Indiana, USA, plant to support several transmission related programmes through the supply of ready-to-assemble differential assemblies and aluminium valve bodies. Construction is expected to be completed by March, 2016.

The expansion is the first step in a five year multi-million dollar capital investment plan to support the launch and production of new programmes. “Our Bluffton operation has grown significantly over the past five years, and this expansion is indicative of our continued commitment to the community,” stated Thomas Amato, President and CEO, Metaldyne LLC, and Co-President, Metaldyne Performance Group (MPG).

Each of the future programmes planned for the Bluffton facility involve internal components which will be supplied from other manufacturing locations of Metaldyne and also MPG companies, further expanding Metaldyne’s platform of vertical integration, the company stated.
