Valeo To Open Auto Parts Factory In Smyrna


(AP) SMYRNA, Tenn. - Auto parts supplier Valeo is opening a factory in Smyrna that will create 63 jobs.

According to a news release from the state office of Economic and Community Development, the company plans to spend up to $5.4 million to renovate a building for the new plant.

It should be fully operational by the fall, when hiring will begin.

"The Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce continues to work with our community partners on
creating sustainable jobs," said Smyrna Mayor Tony Dover. "We are excited Valeo has selected our community to continue to grow their business."

The factory will produce front-end modules for Nissan, which has a plant in Smyrna and whose North American headquarters is based nearby in Franklin.

Front-end modules typically act as a body frame and include the bumper and radiator.
