Together, the operations employ more than 1,500 and have more than 1.4 million square feet under roof.
In the announcement, Busche said Busche Performance Group will continue to grow over the next few years.
“We are on a very clear growth path that will allow for growth of at least 50 percent over the next 36 months,” he said. “With growing confidence from our key customers, including Ford, GM, Honda, Kobe, American Axle, John Deere, Dana and many other outstanding organizations, we are taking our growth very seriously.
“We are constantly aware that safety, quality and continuous improvements must be built into this growth along with world-class delivery if we are to continue to outperform our competitors and win our share of the market.”
