NASHVILLE (AP) – Auto parts maker Pacific Industries is building a new plant in Jackson, which is expected to create 190 new jobs over the first five years of operations.

The facility will focus on making metal stamping and welding operations. The Ogaki, Japan-based company's current customers include Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Mitsubishi.

Nissan makes cars in Tennessee and Mississippi, while Toyota has a manufacturing plant in Kentucky.

Pacific Industries was founded in 1930 and now has more than 3,000 employees in Japan, Taiwan, Belgium, China, South Korea, Thailand and the United States.

Tennessee officials are touting a 6-square-mile "megasite" about 35 miles from Jackson as ideally suited for a new auto assembly plant.
