Nashville, Illinois was chosen over 50 other Midwest cities for the site of Ligma Corporation, which manufactured interior trim kits for automobiles. The selection was a testimony to the close cooperation exhibited by area leaders in developing a package to attract the company to Nashville.
The plant was constructed with a structural steel frame, masonry wainscot, metal panel exterior and a single-ply roof. The project included the construction of several tiered pits to accommodate complex manufacturing equipment. In some areas of the facility, construction required a ceiling with more than 50-foot clearance heights.
The fast-track construction project included the same high-quality finishes that characterize all Magna International projects.
