SELMA, AL - An automotive supplier is setting up shop in Selma's Craig Industrial Park, creating up to 240 new jobs.
Governor Bob Riley and Mayor James Perkins announced today that
Hanil E-Hwa Interior Systems, a tier-one supplier, will become the sixth automotive supplier to locate in the Black Belt during the past two years.
Hanil E-Hwa will make a capital investment of 38 million dollars to purchase a 100,000 square foot building formerly used by American Candy Company and will add an 80-thousand square foot expansion to the facility. The company manufactures interior parts such as door trims, seats and head linings.
The Selma plant is the South Korea-based company's first in the
United States. The governor noted that Alabama recorded the biggest one-year decline in unemployment of all 50 states during the past 12 months.
The Riley administration says during the past year the state has
recorded a net gain of more than 29,000 new jobs.
