voestalpine Automotive Components Cartersville is “Manufacturer of the Year”

Michael Leithinger

In January, voestalpine Automotive Components Cartersville was the recipient of the Manufacturer of the Year award.

Each year the Chamber of Commerce for the Cartersville-Bartow County region presents an award to its chosen “Manufacturer of the Year”. A high-profile committee nominates three companies which have made an outstanding contribution to Bartow County and the well-being of the people living in this region. voestalpine subsidiary voestalpine Automotive Components Cartersville Inc. was presented the award for 2016, and deservedly so: the young company has generated a positive reputation in the region relatively quickly, not only with its products for the automotive industry, but also for its sense of corporate responsibility.

Responsibility for the region

One example of its commitment is the company’s efforts to provide professional training for young people. voestalpine Automotive Components Cartersville offers students at Bartow County College and Career Academy a customized, dual model of vocational training—an example of best practice which is making waves within the region and beyond. “We may be part of a global group, but we are still very conscious of our responsibilities to the region and the people here. We focus on this responsibility in our actions, and that’s why we’ve received this prestigious award,” says a delighted Managing Director, Philipp Schulz.

Skilled workers wanted

The voestalpine company wishes to use this award to strengthen its reputation as a good employer in the region; after all, it will be looking to take on more than 300 new employees over the next three years. All vacancies are listed in the careers section of the company website: voestalpine Automotive Components Cartersville

A very promising location: voestalpine Automotive Components Cartersville began operating here at the end of 2013. Today the company has 130 employees. In three years’ time this figure should have risen to 450.
