TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - A German auto parts maker has started production of commercial-vehicle suspension seating just 12 months after starting construction.

Grammer AG officials say in a news release Tuesday that its 120,000-square-foot facility in Tupelo will begin production of center consoles for customers in 2016.

Based in Amberg, Germany, Grammer is a major supplier of automotive interior components and systems, as well as driver and passenger seating for commercial vehicles.

The company currently has two manufacturing plants in Mexico and maintains sales and engineering centers in Troy, Michigan, and Hudson, Wisconsin.

The company has been selling its products, including seats for construction machinery, tractors and forklifts, as well as trucks, buses and trains for more than 35 years in the United States.
