Flagstaff officials say an aluminum automotive parts manufacturer has selected the city to build the company’s fourth production plant.

UACJ Automotive Whitehall Industries will take over a portion of the former Walgreen’s distribution center and will make parts for electric vehicles and other auto companies.

“We are so excited to welcome Whitehall Industries to Flagstaff. They are a cutting-edge company that exemplifies Flagstaff’s character as a city of innovation and sustainability. We look forward to the immense positive impact they will have for our community,” said said Mayor Paul Deasey in a press release. 

According to the city, the company plans to invest as much as $60 million with the expansion and is expected to bring 120 high-paying jobs to the region in the next year and 350 in the next five years.

Whitehall Industries is part of a Japanese-based aluminum manufacturer and has plants in Michigan, Kentucky and Mexico.
