Motion Industries Inc., Birmingham, Alabama, a distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Co., this week announced a groundbreaking ceremony for its planned shop facility in Irondale, Alabama.
In attendance were Randy Breaux, president, and Joe Limbaugh, SVP distribution, inventory and operations Support, along with Irondale’s mayor and representatives from the Birmingham Business Alliance, Brasfield Gorrie, and Graham Co.
When completed, the $11.2 million 104,000 square-foot building will house Motion’s area fluid power shop, hose and rubber shop and engineering department.
“This project continues our excellent partnership between Brasfield Gorrie and Graham Co.,” said Limbaugh. “These two companies also did a fantastic job with the recent headquarters renovation. At this property, we’re making excellent progress, and while it’s early, we’re ahead of schedule.”
“The main reason for the investment is to strengthen our position and provide the best customer service possible, as our customer base and our company grow,” said Breaux. “We’re looking forward to the positive impact this operation will have – for our customers, our employees, and our community.”
The project was announced in October 2020. The new facility is estimated to be completed in the third quarter of this year and will create 15 new jobs while retaining 13.
