An automotive company plans to open in a building that formerly housed one of Johnson County’s largest employers.

SAPP Inc. is starting a manufacturing operation in a 200,000-square-foot facility in Edinburgh that spans about four blocks and used to house Lear Corp., which closed more than five years ago.
