NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- IB-Tech, a subsidiary of Japanese-owned auto parts manufacturer Imasen Electric Industrial Co., plans to invest $50 million in a facility in Mount Pleasant, creating 385 jobs.
Gov. Phil Bredesen and government leaders announced Wednesday IB-Tech will manufacture seat adjusters at the facility in Maury County, a suburb of Nashville.
IB-Tech will begin full production in 2012. The facility will be located in the former Avantech building.
In addition to seat adjusters, Imasen Electric produces automobile lamps, relays and window regulators and serves clients such as Honda and Mitsubishi.
This will be its second manufacturing facility in the U.S., with one previous operation in Bucyrus, Ohio.
