Auto parts maker to create 153 jobs in Tennessee expansion

HENDERSON, Tenn. (AP) — A company that makes automotive parts announced plans on Thursday to expand operations in southwest Tennessee that would yield 153 new jobs over five years.

The project by Arvin Sango, Inc. involves expansion of its existing manufacturing facility in Henderson, where the company has expanded two other times since 2008, according to a news release from the state Department of Economic and Community Development.

Arvin Sango has its headquarters in Indiana and its parent company is based in Japan. The company supplies stamped auto body parts and door safety parts for the automotive industry, including brands such as Toyota and Nissan.

The company's expansion in Chester County aims to keep up with growing demand, the state economic development agency said.
