As auto makers are faced with higher federal fuel efficiency requirements and crash test standards, one Champaign County manufacturer has moved its company forward by developing a $3.7M research & development facility in Plain City, Ohio. KTH, a supplier for Honda that specializes in metal stamping and welding, broke ground for their new R&D facility in 2015. The facility serves to keep KTH ahead of the competition by studying such technologies as new ways to blend aluminum and steel that will result in more lightweight vehicles to stamping ultra high strength steel.
