Topre America, Japanese auto parts firm that supplies Honda will invest more than $10 million to open a plant next year at the Champion City Business Park in Springfield. The company will manufacture high-strength steel parts for the Acura MDX. Initially Topre will produce the front bulk head for the vehicle. To make the deal work, local investors will build a 20,000-square-foot facility at the business park to lease to the company for three years. The firm then has options to expand, continue to lease or buy the building. Topre will be the first company to move into the 30-acre business park.
