Automotive in the USA: Lear’s 30-million-dollar new factory is ready

They started building the plant in 2017. Lear has now brought works to completion, while subsequently relocating all workers, previously employed in two separate factories, to the new “melded” manufacturing site, situated in Hammond, Indiana. The value of the investment amounts to 30 million dollars: the Hammond Redevelopment Commission financially supported 4 of them as an incentive, intentionally allocated to foster Lear’s decision to enhance their production in the US State. 575 employees, previously based in the Hammond old plant, and around 300 more, currently hired in the factory located nearby in the town of Portage, are going to work all together in the new manufacturing site. As emphasized by, the plant will produce car seats and interiors for Ford Motor.
