Governor Kay Ivey has announced that an Italian die-casting company is planning to invest $15 million to expand its foundry in Auburn, creating more than 50 jobs.

2A S.p.A. is a tier 1 supplier to major producers of automobiles and heavy trucks.

“2A has earned a reputation for technical innovation, and its decision to expand its Alabama manufacturing operation is a testament to its skilled workforce in Auburn. We’re thrilled that this first-class company is including Alabama in its growth plans.” — Governor Kay Ivey

2A’s parent company, headquartered in Santena, near Turin, is Italy’s biggest privately owned high-pressure die-casting industrial company. It specializes in the die casting of large, complex aluminum components that are coated, machined, assembled and painted to meet customer requests.

“With this expansion, 2A is bringing even higher-level technology to its already advanced operation here in Auburn. We’re pleased that they have confidence in Auburn to make such a significant additional investment and look forward to their continued success as a leader in high-pressure die-casting.” — Auburn Mayor Ron Anders
