It’s been a while in the making — ground was broken back in October 2016 — but German automotive supplier MöllerTech cut the ribbon March 13 on its $46.3 million manufacturing facility in Bibb County. The company expects to create 222 jobs typically paying about $12 an hour at the facility.

The plant should be in full production later this year. It will manufacture interior parts for the next-generation Mercedes-Benz SUVs as part of the $1.3 billion Mercedes expansion announced in 2015.

MöllerTech, the automotive arm of German-based MöllerGroup, has said that the Bibb County facility will be the company’s flagship manufacturing site and a model for future plants around the world. The company’s two other U.S. facilities are in Elberton, Georgia, and Shelby Township, Michigan.

MöllerGroup is a family-owned company with about 1,800 employees worldwide and a history that goes back nearly 300 years. It makes interior parts for Audi, BMW, Daimler, GM, Honda, Porsche, Rolls-Royce and Toyota.
