Produces 200 million mirror glass actuators

Magna International Inc. announces that its division in Weiz, Austria, is celebrating a significant milestone: the production of 200 million “MR4” mirror glass actuators, one of several glass actuator variants produced at the plant.

“We are very proud to achieve this milestone after developing and manufacturing innovative mirror glass actuators for more than 17 years,” said Michael Faustmann, Director Sales Actuators. “It’s a great success based on the high commitment of our entire team and it also demonstrates the trust that our customers put in our company.”

Magna’s Weiz facility started producing the MR4 mirror glass actuator in 1999, and in that first year the company manufactured approximately 250,000 of the components. Since then, production capacity has expanded to four automated production lines serving almost all OEMs worldwide, and the facility now has approximately 450 employees who produce nearly 18.5 million of the actuators every year.

A glass actuator is a key component housed in a vehicle’s outside mirrors which allows a driver to move the mirror glass for optimal rear vision. Magna Mirrors is the global leader in outside mirrors and produces its mirror actuators in-house.
