November 09, 2011

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Linamar Corp. faces a European Union investigation into 26.65 million euros ($36.5 million) of German government aid to help it build a new car-parts factory.

The European Commission said in an e-mailed statement today it would examine whether the Guelph, Ontario-based auto-parts maker needed the government grant and tax breaks to make the investment in the new facility, which is to manufacture engine and transmission parts in Crimmitschau, Germany.
