Auto parts manufacturer opens plant expansion

A Franklin manufacturer opened a 50,000-square-foot expansion to its plant this week, which will add about 50 jobs over the next three years.

KYB Americas Corp. completed the expansion to the southeast side of its plant, which will house two existing and three new aftermarket parts manufacturing lines, director of administration Lance Clark said.

KYB plans to increase the number of aftermarket parts made, which are sold to businesses such as auto parts stores instead of new car manufacturers, from 750,000 pieces per year to 2 million per year by 2020.
