COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Manufacturing equipment maker ATC Automation is expanding its operations in Cookeville and adding 110 new jobs.

The company says most of the new positions will be engineering jobs to help ATC meet growing demand for its assembly lines and test equipment for the automotive, medical, energy and consumer products markets.
