Spotlight: American Autocoat and Ford Team Up to Bring Jobs to Hudsonville

May 8th, 2012

Commercial Manager

Recently Borgman Ford was honored to supply two Ford Focus display cars for the kick off of a new 4-year contract with  Autocoat to supply interior parts for this vehicle.  Previously the parts were processed by a supplier in Mexico.  With unmatched quality and consistency, homegrown Hudsonville manufacturer, American Autocoat, was able to bring that contract back to Michigan, which will result in a 20% increase in workforce.

We are proud to represent an American manufacturer that is bringing jobs back to the United States.  We are proud of our partners and businesses in West Michigan who through quality, innovation, and a never-ending spirit, continue to grow and develop new ways to do business!

Founded in 2002, American Autocoat is a plastic mold, paint, and assembly facility that was named one of “Fifty Michigan Companies to Watch.”  They currently run interior and exterior components for Nissan, General Motors, Jeep, and Ford.  Ford makes up 62% of the business, where American Autocoat makes parts for the F-150, Fusion, Explorer, Transit Connect, and the Focus.

American Autocoat offers one of the most innovative plastics facilities in West Michigan.  Their 85000 sq. ft. facility has dedicated space for manufacturing, paint mixing, assembly, warehousing, maintenance, tooling, and quality control.  They also maintain a high level of environmental awareness and employ a number of systems that capture, burn, and re-use any and all waste products.

Kudos to American Autocoat for making West Michigan proud; and kudos to Ford for on-shoring its labor!
