Automotive Systems Maker Expanding In Sumner County

CREATED Jul 11, 2014

GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP) - Officials said the expansion of an automotive systems manufacturer in Gallatin could create 230 new jobs over the next five years in Sumner County.

Governor Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty announced this week that ABC Group Inc. is adding an additional 180,000 square feet to its existing facility in response to increased demand for automotive-related products.

The investment is more than $25 million in land, infrastructure and equipment.

The expansion will increase production capacity of console, interior trim and load floors for the new GMC and Cadillac vehicles produced at the General Motors plant in Spring Hill.
