The Toronto-based company's Central Texas plant makes coated fabrics and vinyl films used for car dashboards, doors and seats. Crews have already started installing new casting lines, printers and inspection tables that are expected to double the plant's capacity. The installation work on the new line is expected to be finished by the end of the year. However, it is not expected to come into full production until early 2020.
