CANTON, Miss. — Nissan North America will build a 1 million-square-foot campus for its suppliers just north of the company's vehicle assembly plant in Canton.

The announcement came today during a ceremony in Canton where Gov. Phil Bryant and Nissan officials spoke.

Earlier this year, Mississippi lawmakers approved a bill to allow the Madison County Economic Development Authority to use $100 million in bonds toward construction of buildings to be used by suppliers of the Nissan plant.

Lawmakers estimated the suppliers could create 800 to 1,000 jobs.

Nissan now makes seven vehicles: the Armada and Xterra SUVs, the Titan and Frontier pickup trucks, the NV van, the Altima sedan and the Sentra sedan.
