Korean auto supplier SL America has unveiled a $14 million expansion in Clinton, Tenn., where it will create 100 new jobs, according to Gov. Bill Haslam.
The company will add 175,000 square feet to its existing facility. SL Tennessee is an automotive parts supplier for General Motors, and this marks the company’s fourth expansion in Clinton within the last 10 years, according to the state.
“We’ve recently intensified our economic development efforts surrounding existing Tennessee companies, as they are by far the major job creators in the state and the driving force behind growing our economy,” said Haslam.
SL Tennessee manufactures parts including gear shifters, parking brakes and lighting products. In 2001, SL Tennessee became the first Korean-owned automobile parts manufacturer in the Volunteer State.
