Elkhart, IN, December 05, 2020 — Citing a need for expanded capacity, a substantial growth in business and a continued dedication to its customer base, Truck Accessories Group (TAG) announces the planned opening of a fifth fiberglass cap manufacturing facility.
“This is an important new chapter in the evolution and success of our company and the industry as a whole,” said John Aleva, Truck Accessories Group President. “Over the past year, we have recognized a growing demand for capacity. That, along with a thriving Fleet vehicle market and increased interest in specialized projects within the automotive industry made this the right time to extend our capabilities.”
According to Aleva, the new facility, located in Mexico, is consistent with TAG’s strategy to apply business continuity thinking and advanced production technology in order to provide manufacturing solutions. The state-of-the-art facility is slated to begin production in early 2021.
He added, “Our goal is to strengthen production quality and improve our employee’s work-life balance while shortening lead times and readying ourselves to meet anticipated market needs. We believe that these necessary and significant investments in the business now will help solidify our position within the industry, and addressing capacity allows us to create room for growth and provide continued employees with balance and opportunities,” said Aleva.
