iwis motorsysteme to locate in former Webasto facility in Murray

Gov. Steve Beshear came to the former Webasto building on U.S. 641 North Friday to announce that iwis, a German automotive supplier, would be bringing 75 new, full-time jobs and more than $12.5 million in investment to Murray next year.

According to a Kentucky Business Investment (KBI) report from the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority, iwis (pronounced ee-vis and written in lowercase letters) is a leading supplier to the automotive industry around the world, with products such as high-quality chain drive systems for camshafts, injection pumps, differential shafts, oil pumps and auxiliary units. The company will operate in the 119,000-square-foot facility that used to house Webasto, and employees at the Murray facility will manufacture timing drive systems for automotive engines.

The operation will start in 2013 and will ramp up production in 2014, according to a press release from the Governor's Office. Managing Director Johannes Winklhofer said he hoped to have the facility running by August 2013.
