TROY, Mich., February 20, 2023 (Newswire.com) - INOAC USA Inc. has recently completed its purchase of ABC Technologies' 50% equity interest in the former joint venture, ABC INOAC Exterior Systems, to create an independent and wholly owned entity renamed INOAC Exterior Systems (IES). Adding four facilities with more than 1,200 employees will better enable INOAC to independently drive its strategy in the North American automotive exterior parts market through IES.
President of INOAC USA, Inc., Rob DePotter, is excited about opportunities for IES in the automotive industry and beyond. "We will provide the same high-quality and consistent delivery performance, as well as increase our focus on customer satisfaction, innovation and strategic investments in the automotive exteriors market.

INOAC Exterior Systems will continue to be a key supplier for auto manufacturers in North America, with products tailored to customers' engineering and production needs. Products are Class A, available in painted, primer-/paint-ready, molded-in-color (MIC) and textured. IES exterior automotive components deliver light weighting along with strength and the ability to accommodate the custom designs that automakers seek.
