Global leader in the design, engineering and manufacturing of automotive driveline systems and components American Axle & Manufacturing announced the grand opening of a new manufacturing facility in the industrial area of Viladecans, Spain, just outside Barcelona. The new facility will support demand and growth from new and current European customers including Renault, BMW, Daimler, Porsche, Audi and Ford. AAM Barcelona produces a complete range of vibration control and damper products including PV bonded dampers, press-in compression dampers, isolation pulleys, in-mould bonded dampers and damped gears.

The new 15,600 square meter facility located 20 km southwest of Barcelona consolidates two smaller facilities in nearby Gavà and at full capacity will employ nearly 300 associates. It has a lean, efficient production layout and optimized materials flow for components delivery to the lines.

Mr David C Dauch, AAM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said that “AAM’s new Barcelona Manufacturing Facility is a key part of our continued mission to diversify and expand our global customer base and product mix. European automakers are continuing to downsize engines and AAM’s segment-leading products support this mission with technology that helps reduce noise and vibrations in the vehicle.”
