German Company Building Cold-Rolled Facility in Kentucky

Germany's Bilstein Group will construct a cold-rolled steel facility in Bowling Green, Ky. The $120 million investment to supply the automotive industry will be known as Bilstein Cold Rolled Steel LP.

Founded in 1911 in Hagen, Germany, Bilstein Group has grown to be the world’s largest supplier of cold-rolled products. It will construct a 150,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in the 72-acre Kentucky Transpark to better serve its North American auto customers.

“We are absolutely certain that Bowling Green is the perfect spot for our new state-of-the-art cold-rolling mill, our most advanced annealing furnaces and slitting operations,” says Marc T. Oehler, CEO and partner of the Bilstein Group. “Being both sufficiently close to our customers, suppliers and well within reach from Europe and any place in North America was critical to our decision.”

Design of the new facility will begin immediately with construction set to begin in the spring of 2015. The plant is expected to be operational by early 2018.
