Automotive Lighting Manufacturer Invests in New St. Charles, Missouri, Headquarters

Diode Dynamics, an automotive LED lighting manufacturer, is investing in Missouri with a new 70,000 square foot headquarters facility in St. Charles, Missouri. The investment is expected to create 36 new jobs in the region.

The new facility will include a showroom, four drive-in garage bays, an electronics manufacturing area, engineering laboratory, 30-foot warehouse, and two-story office.

“We are thrilled to be constructing a new headquarters that’s custom-tailored to our needs,” said Diode Dynamics CEO and Majority Owner, Paul McCain. “This project will perfectly support our mission to design and manufacture automotive lighting products with the absolute best quality and performance possible, here in the USA.”

Across the state, Missouri talent drives automotive manufacturing into the future with significant production from Ford and General Motors. Missouri talent makes more than 333,000 Ford F-Series trucks every year, in addition to the Ford Transit van, every Chevrolet Colorado and Express, and every GMC Canyon and Savana. In fact, General Motors believed in Missouri talent enough that it recently invested $1.5 billion and retained nearly 4,000 jobs at its facility in Wentzville, Missouri.
