Expansion Begins at Halla Visteon Manufacturing Facility

Doster began construction in May on the expansion of the Halla Climate Control manufacturing facility in Shorter, Alabama. Halla Visteon produces climate control systems worldwide for the automotive industry and counts many major automakers among its domestic customers. The project consists of a 70,000 square foot expansion to the existing 290,000 square foot facility, which was originally built in 2003 and is home to more than 500 employees. The expansion will be a tilt-wall concrete building with metal roof with a connecting breezeway to the existing manufacturing building. “The facility will significantly improve quality control for HVCC products and ultimately result in new jobs in the Shorter/Macon County area. The expansion demonstrates Halla Visteon’s commitment to grow with Shorter,” said Harold Powell, City Clerk for the City of Shorter. Doster Construction Company is the project’s general contractor with KPS Group as the architect of record.
