FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) A company based in Germany that makes vehicle fuel lines and connectors held a ribbon cutting Tuesday for its new North American headquarters. Voss Automotive announced plans to build the 50,000 square foot facility located on Hillegas Road next to I-69 back in 2012. Fort Wayne has been home to Voss’ North American headquarters since 1997.
The building includes 33,579 square feet of office space, prototype and test lab and a 15,167 square feet warehouse.
“The construction of our new North American Headquarters has allowed our company to create a modern office environment that fosters teamwork and collaboration, a workplace where employees can truly enjoy coming to work. We wanted to build our new facility in an area where the workforce already possessed the knowledge, expertise, and technical skills required to become successful here in the United States, and we found that in the greater Fort Wayne area,” stated CEO, Eduardo Vultorius. “
Voss was founded in Germany in 1931. The company had already employed 60 people locally and with the new headquarters, 23 new positions were created.
