MBDA Helps Bridgewater Interiors Access Honda Manufacturing Supply Chain

Founded in 1998, Bridgewater Interiors LLC, is an automotive manufacturer of quality seats and interior trim, and one of the largest minority-owned manufacturers in the country.

Bridgewater approached the Mobile MBDA Business Center seeking an introduction to Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA). The business consultant team of the Center leveraged extensive private sector relationships, and not only made key introductions, but assisted in the bid preparation, facilitation of meetings, and overall tracking of the bid process. As a result, Bridgewater was awarded a $260 million contract with HMA, creating 87 new jobs and 275 jobs retained.

"We've used this opportunity to become more fully engaged in managing the HMA programs and enhancing our relationship with Honda representatives. We thank the MBDA Business Center for all they have done and for their ongoing support of our company," said Ronald E. Hall, President.
