Eagle Manufacturing LLC–Linamar
has grown from a $30 million company in 2010 to an estimated $70 million company by year's end. In the last year, Eagle Manufacturing has invested $40 million in capital improvements and hired 140 people, more than doubling its workforce.
Eagle Manufacturing makes and markets automotive parts and components for engines, including cylinder heads, connecting rods, intake and exhaust manifolds, lower crankcases, flywheel housings and transmission shafts. It was incorporated in 1998 and is a subsidiary of Canadian Linamar Corp.
“Eagle Manufacturing will add capacity in our growing automotive business, and give us advanced manufacturing capabilities in an important region central to many of our customers,” says Linamar CEO Linda Hasenfratz.
The company's growth coincides with the reemergence of the American auto industry, which hit a nadir after the sharp economic downtown of 2008. The company manufactures parts for Ford, GM, Chrysler and Toyota, among others.
“Northern Kentucky Tri-ED works very closely with the companies in our region to facilitate their growth and expansions which in turn mean new, high-paying jobs for our community,” says Steve Arlinghaus, Tri-ED Chairman and Kenton County Judge Executive. “We’re thrilled that these advanced manufacturing companies call Kentucky home and are committed to growing in Northern Kentucky.”
Eagle Manufacturing's growth has caught regional and national attention. It received a Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber growth award
, and was among Kentucky's 10 top job creation projects that lead to the state being awarded the 2012 Silver Shovel Award from Area Development magazine
