Topre America Corp. first announced plans to build a manufacturing site in Springfield in December 2016, when the Japanese auto parts firm announced plans to invest $10 million in a new 20,000-square-foot stamping facility that would create 20 jobs.

Then in March of last year, Topre increased its investment to $55 million in a 177,000 square-foot site and added 85 jobs after acquiring additional work supplying manufacturers like Honda and Toyota.

In March this year, the company said will create 204 jobs and invest $73 million as part of an expansion to its plant in the Champion City Business Park, which is still under construction. The expansion, which will add a 138,000-square-foot stamping facility to the site, is contingent on state and local incentives.

That brings the company’s total investment to about $130 million, with a projected total workforce just shy of 300 employees.

Here’s a look at the crane moving to assist the development:

Company officials have previously told the News-Sun the latest expansion will take up most of the space available at the business park, leaving room for only one more possible expansion.
