HOLLAND — Coastal Automotive, a tier-1 supplier of high-tech foams for the automotive and aerospace industries, today announced plans to open a new manufacturing facility in Holland.

The 300,000-square-foot facility, located at 900 Brooks Ave., is slated to begin operations in July, according to a statement.

Coastal Automotive, which is based in Rochester, a suburb of Detroit, plans to hire 150 workers over the next three years as it ramps up production of its energy-absorbing and sound deadening foam products.

The company chose West Michigan for the site of its new facility in part because its sister company, Coastal Container, is also based in Holland, according to the statement.

“Expanding production into Holland was a natural fit for us,” Clarence Martin, president of Coastal Automotive, said in the statement. “The Holland area has significant expertise in manufacturing and the auto industry, and the area has a very talented workforce.”
