AAM Invests More Than $100 Million in Michigan
New Business Triggers Investments at Three Rivers Manufacturing Facility and More than 500 New Jobs

Detroit, Michigan, Feb 2, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (AAM), which is traded as AXL on the NYSE, announced today that it is investing more than $100 million in its Three Rivers Manufacturing Facility located in Three Rivers, Michigan. The investment, which will be completed by December 2013, is expected to create more than 500 new jobs while further diversifying AAM's product portfolio and customer base in North America.

The investment represents the installation of new production lines, multiple assembly stations, paint line modifications, additional shipping and receiving capacity and upgrades to the facility's business offices and lobby. To complete the project, AAM has sourced millions of dollars of business to Michigan-based companies, and in turn, is positively impacting multiple communities in the state.

"Last fall, we announced that AAM would be bringing new business to Michigan," said AAM President & Chief Executive Officer David C. Dauch. "For the past two years, we have been preparing the Three Rivers Manufacturing Facility for this new business launch. Now, we are in a growth mode and hiring hundreds of associates. This is exciting news for the State of Michigan, the City of Three Rivers and for AAM."

AAM's Growth in the State of Michigan

In 2012 alone, AAM invested more than $50 million and created nearly 300 new jobs in the State of Michigan. This investment represents technologically advanced machining equipment, R&D laboratory equipment, IT infrastructure upgrades and more. Anchored by its global headquarters in the City of Detroit, AAM operates a total of seven facilities in Michigan.

"AAM will continue to make investments in Michigan, North America and regions across the globe where we are privileged to do business," added Dauch.
