Schrader Electronics expanding in Springfield

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State officials say auto valve and sensor maker Schrader Electronics is expanding its facility in Springfield and adding 76 manufacturing jobs.

Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said in a statement that the company's expansion represents an investment of $10 million.

Schrader makes pneumatic tire valves and tire pressure monitoring systems for the automobile industry.
