Ribbon cutting ceremony set for Friday at Fras-le's expanded Prattville plant | Business
PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - It's been exactly 1 year since Fras-le North America announced that it was expanding its Prattville plant. Friday, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley will be among those on-hand for the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
Bentley, Fras-le executives and other elected leaders and economic developers will be at the manufacturing facility for the expansion celebration.
The $11 million expansion announcement was made in January of 2012.
The expansion increases the company’s capabilities to supply brake lining to its customer base for commercial vehicle business in North America.
The decision meant new equipment for the Prattville facility, located off Echlin Boulevard, and involved hiring of nearly 100 new employees in 2012 and 2013.
