PORTLAND, Tenn. (AP) -- Automotive supplier Kyowa America Corp. is opening a new manufacturing plant in Portland.
State officials announced Friday that the investment at the Robertson County site is worth $12 million and will create 160 jobs.
Kyowa America specializes in plastic injection molding used in automotive applications.
Gov. Bill Haslam said in a statement that Kyowa America's decision to locate in Tennessee reflects what he called "the business friendly climate our state offers."
Kyowa America announced in February that it was closing its plant in Franklin Township, Pa., eliminating the jobs of about 110 employees there.
