Superior Adds Fourth Wheel Plant in Chihuahua

Superior Industries International Inc. announced Tuesday that it has chosen the Mexican city of Chihuahua as the site for its newest manufacturing facility. This will be the fourth factory operated by the Van Nuys aluminum-wheel manufacturer in Chihuahua, the capital of Chihuahua, a northern state that borders Texas and New Mexico. The company has been there for more than 20 years. “Our team of employees in Chihuahua is a critical part of our success, and we are excited to be able to commit to providing more opportunities there,” said Superior Chief Executive Steven Borick in a prepared statement. Superior announced in March it would build a manufacturing plant at a cost of up to $135 million to produce between 2 million and 2.5 million wheels a year. Groundbreaking is expected later this year with a completion expected in 2015. Shares closed up 30 cents, or 1.72 percent, to $17.77 on the New York Stock Exchange.
