An electric car parts manufacturer has announced plans to build its new manufacturing plant in Flagstaff, promising to add 120 jobs over the next 12 months.
UACJ Whitehall also announced in a press release Thursday it would add 350 jobs and $60 million in capital expenditures over five years in the northern Arizona city.
The plant will be located inside a former Walgreens Pharmacy distribution center, with operations beginning by the end of April, according to the release.
The Michigan-based company launched as Whitehall Industries in 1974, building parts for copying and printing equipment before moving into the auto industry in 2001.
They were acquired by Japanese-based manufacturer UACJ Corp. in 2016 and currently operate plants in Michigan, Kentucky and Mexico.
