Auburn Getting Automotive Industry

AUBURN (AP) - A new automotive supplier is coming to Auburn.

The city's economic development director, Phillip Dunlap, says a
sophisticated machining operation has decided to locate in the east
Alabama city. He says it will bring about 170 new jobs to the area.

In all, the project represents a capital investment of about 33 million dollars.

Governor Riley plans a news conference later today in Montgomery
to release details on the industry.

Thirteen automotive suppliers already are located in Auburn.
