Berghoff Group opening $30 million production facility, creating 100 jobs in Auburn
AUBURN, Ala. — The Berghoff Group announced plans recently to set up its first U.S. manufacturing plant in Auburn, where it will invest $30 million and create 100 precision-machining jobs over the next five years.
John Emerson, the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, announced the deal at the 2016 Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial fair. The U.S. is the event’s official partner country this year, and President Barack Obama joined German Chancellor Angela Merkel to officially open the fair on Monday.
Starting in 2017, Berghoff Precision Machining will use its manufacturing expertise to produce parts in Auburn for key customers in equipment fabrication, semiconductor and aerospace industries.

“The announcement today is great news for Auburn, and this expansion will provide excellent job opportunities for our residents,” he said. “I am extremely grateful for the support that the project has received from the State of Alabama, and I’m proud to welcome the Berghoff team to Auburn.”
