Composite automotive component manufacturer Continental Structural Plastics (CSP, Auburn Hills, Mich., U.S.) broke ground on Oct. 1 for a new manufacturing facility in Seguin, Texas. This new facility, located near Interstate 10, Rio Nogales Drive and 8th Street, is expected to be fully operational by 2021.

CSP and its parent company Teijin (Tokyo, Japan) are investing approximately $70 million to construct the 200,000 square-foot facility, which will reportedly result in the creation of 200 production, engineering and administrative jobs. CSP says the facility is being built to support future growth and to help the company maintain its competitive advantage. This location will become CSP’s 19th global manufacturing facility (its 14th in North America), and the Teijin Group’s 25th global composite component manufacturing facility.

CSP selected the Seguin location for its newest manufacturing plant based on availability of a skilled workforce, proximity to a number of customer and potential customer facilities in Texas and surrounding states, and a variety of incentives and abatements offered, including a land grant and tax abatement from the City of Seguin and a Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant from the State of Texas, in exchange for specific capital investment and workforce commitments by CSP.

“We continue to see growth opportunities for our advanced composite and multi-material components globally, so we’re making sure we have the manufacturing capabilities necessary to meet our customers’ needs,” says Steve Rooney, CSP CEO. “We are truly grateful to the State of Texas, the City of Seguin and Guadalupe County for the support we’ve received in initiating this project, and we look forward to being an active member of the Seguin community.”
