TROY, Michigan, October 16, 2015 – GRA-MAG, a joint venture between Grammer AG and Magna International, has something to celebrate. Its facility in London, Ohio, has reached a significant milestone by producing its 1,000,000th seat for the medium- and heavy-duty US-truck market.
GRA-MAG was formed in 1998 in the USA with a focus on producing medium- and heavy-duty truck seat systems to reduce driver fatigue. The first seats were manufactured on October 18, 2000, and provided superior levels of comfort, performance and safety. Today GRA-MAG continues to offer best-in-class comfort, ease of use and overall performance for air-ride suspension and stationary truck seats.
“This milestone could not have been achieved without the hard work of our employees and the ongoing support of our community, our customers Kenworth and Peterbilt, and the Madison County Chamber of Commerce,” said David Higgs, President of GRA-MAG. “As we look ahead, we see opportunities to continue adding value for our customers by providing seat systems that deliver the ultimate performance in comfort and control. At the same time we will remain true to our original mission of reducing driver fatigue through comfort, performance and safety.”
