Indiana Auto Parts Plant To Add 65 Jobs

FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) -- An auto parts factory in central Indiana plans to hire 65 additional workers over the next two years as it begins making a new component.

The plans come nearly a year after the Mitsubishi Heavy Industry Climate Control factory in Franklin laid off 87 employees following the bankruptcy of a customer.

Plant general manager Bob Francis says hiring is expected to start next year after about $9 million in new equipment is installed. The factory will then be making air compressors that help improve fuel efficiency.
