Global company expands operations in Tiffin facility

Italian based Agrati is the third largest fastener company in the world, and they focus on automotive components.

They doubled their Tiffin facility in 2013 by adding 40,000 square feet to their plant. Recently, they finished another $1.6 million expansion here.

The new space allowed for the creation of 10 new positions as well.

Although that’s not a huge number in terms of adding new jobs, the expansion at this facility is a big win for local leaders.

“They’ve got 12 facilities worldwide, they could have expanded anywhere. They have 500 employees in the US, and to be able to continue to invest here in Tiffin and Seneca County, it’s really exciting for us,” said David Zak, president and CEO of the Tiffin-Seneca Eceonomic Partnership.

Those 10 newly created positions have already been filled at Agrati, but corporate leadership says more potential expansion could take place in the future.
