New Maury County auto plant to create 385 jobs

A subsidiary of a Japanese-owned auto parts maker plans to open a plant in Maury County that will eventually create 385 jobs in a community that has taken a hit from partial closure of General Motors’ auto plant in Spring Hill.
The plant will be the second in the United States for IB-Tech, a unit of manufacturer Imasen Electric Industrial Co.

It plans to invest $50 million in the plant that will make seat adjusters from a location in Mt Pleasant, Tenn.

Production planning will begin next year with full production starting in 2012 at the former AvaTech Manufacturing building. That company that had made headliners for cars folded last year.
