Tower International was formed in 1993, however many of our engineering and manufacturing operations date back further. A.O. Smith Automotive Products Company, which was acquired by Tower International in 1997, has roots dating back to the early days of the automotive industry. The 1903 Cadillac was produced on the first steel frame which was invented by A.O. Smith. In the 1920’s their first fully automatic frame line with adjustable riveting robots became known as a “Mechanical Marvel”.
In 2010, Tower International completed its Initial Public Offering on the New York Stock Exchange. Currently Tower International has revenue of approximately $1.6 billion and our nearly 5,700 colleagues proudly serve the world’s largest automobile manufacturers.
