LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) – State officials say the expansion of an automotive parts manufacturer in Wilson County could create more than 200 jobs.

Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty announced this week that Southtec LLC will invest $24 million to add onto its existing facility in Lebanon, as well as develop a new property creating 210 jobs.

The company produces stampings and welded assemblies for the automotive industry. It currently has 315 employees.

Haslam says the announcement supports the state's goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.
