VANCE, Ala. (AP) -- Mercedes-Benz is opening a new section at its plant in Tuscaloosa County.

The German automaker is cutting the ribbon on a $70 million logistics center at its automotive factory in Vance on Wednesday afternoon.

Gov. Robert Bentley is among the officials planning to attend the event.
About 600 contractors and service providers will work in the 900,000-square-foot building. They will be responsible for handling almost 3 million parts a day.

The facility will receive components and organize them into the proper order for the manufacturing process.
