Magna International will construct a 122,500-square-foot manufacturing plant in Spring Hill at a cost of $16 million.
The new location, the company’s fifth in Tennessee, is expected to be operational by January 2015. The project is expected to create 357 new jobs in Maury County, according to a recent news release from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
Magna will manufacture complete seat assemblies, supplying General Motors’ Spring Hill assembly plant. GM recently announced next-generation Cadillac SRX as a future mid-size vehicle to be produced at Spring Hill.
“We are ecstatic to have a high-profile, global parts supplier like Magna investing more than $16 million in our community,” Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham said. “Magna will make GM-Spring Hill’s manufacturing operations even more efficient, attract new residents to Spring Hill and add 357 good paying jobs to our rapidly growing local economy.”
Magna International is a global automotive supplier with 317 manufacturing operations in 29 countries. Magna employs over 130,000 workers worldwide.
