Zarges Aluminum Systems GmbH, a division of Germany-based Zarges-Tubesca Holding GmbH, will begin construction on a wind tower internals manufacturing facility in Amarillo, Texas, in the second quarter of this year.

The 80,000 square-foot plant, expected to be operational by the end of the year, will be a replica of the Zarges facility in Weilheim, Germany, where the company currently manufactures integrated aluminum internal systems for wind towers. Zarges expects to employ 100 people in manufacturing and logistics in Amarillo by 2012.

"Zarges is excited about this new facility and the potential it holds for improving internal production and delivery in the United States and Canada," says Tim Dannels, managing director of U.S. operations for Zarges. "The Zarges aluminum system simplifies a range of processes, from cost-effective manufacturing to efficient delivery and low long-term maintenance costs."

The facility will be located on more than 8.5 acres within the Amarillo Economic Development Corp.'s (EDC) CenterPort Business Park, with an option to expand to an additional five acres. The Amarillo EDC has granted Zarges incentives that include financial benefits and offsets in terms of land, physical structure and taxes.
