Murfreesboro facility expanding, adding 94 jobs

Posted: Updated:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - State officials say that automotive seat manufacturer NHK Seating of America Inc. plans to expand its facility in Murfreesboro, adding 94 jobs in the process.

Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said Thursday that the company's expansion represents a $6.8 million investment in Rutherford County.

Fred Myers, plant manager of NHK's Murfreesboro facility, says the company is adding employees and capital equipment to support increasing production volume.

NHK also plans to add a robotic weld cell that will use robots to make automotive seat structures at the facility.

NHK completed its Murfreesboro plant in 2011. Currently, 81 people are employed there.
