Shiloh Industries announces $20 Million Investment and Planned Opening of Aluminum Die Casting Plant in Montgomery County Tennesssee

Company is adding more than 150 new jobs to support current and future customer programs

Shiloh IndustriesValley City, OH – Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHLO), a leading supplier of lightweighting, noise and vibration solutions, today announced the opening of its Montgomery County, Tennessee, aluminum die casting plant.

The brownfield site was acquired by Shiloh in August of 2013. Shiloh has initiated renovations, upgrades and the addition of new equipment to the facility and estimates it will invest over $20 million along with adding more than 150 new jobs to support future production needs and customer demands. The investment and new jobs will be made over the course of the next five years.

The plant is approximately 125,000 sq. ft. and one of five Shiloh large tonnage, high-pressure die casting facilities in the U.S.

“Shiloh has received strong demand for our industry-leading portfolio of lightweighting solutions,” said Ramzi Hermiz, president and CEO of Shiloh Industries. “We are investing and expanding our operations to meet customer demand, and are continually focused on leading with technology to develop products and solutions that address industry pinch points. In addition to structural die castings, another example is our recently announced BlankLight™ family of products which offers the lightest blank in the industry – the first formable aluminum laser welded blank for mass production.”

Since taking over control of the Clarksville plant, Shiloh has been steadily investing in the facility, including upgrades to the quality lab, die cast cells, x-ray systems and employee facilities. Additionally, the plant is expanding its range of 1600-ton die cast machines to include a 2,500-ton machine and overall infrastructure improvements.

“The continued investment and commitment to our Clarksville facility will allow us to add capacity for our high pressure and structural, aluminum die castings – leading technologies that help our customers reduce vehicle weight,” added Hermiz. “Clarksville is strategically located near several automotive companies and we have opened the facility with the launch of a commercial vehicle program.”

Shiloh offers the broadest portfolio of lightweighting solutions in the industry, capable of delivering solutions in aluminum, magnesium, steel and steel alloys. Shiloh delivers these solutions through design, engineering and manufacturing of first operation blanks, engineered welded blanks, complex stampings, modular assemblies and highly engineered aluminum and magnesium die casting and machined components serving the body-in-white, emission, powertrain, structural and seating needs of OEM and Tier 1 customers.

“Thanks to the cooperation and support from the Tennessee Economic Development Corporation, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Clarksville-Montgomery County Industrial Development Board, we are able to make a positive impact on the Clarksville community and surrounding areas,” commented Jesse Maurer, Vice President, Human Resources. “With a strong future of continued growth, we believe Shiloh will remain an employer of choice in the region and attract bright new minds to join our team.”
