New plant creating 155 jobs in Russell County

RUSSELL SPRINGS, Ky. (AP) — An automotive industry plant opening in south-central Kentucky will create 155 full-time jobs.

Germany-based Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems Inc. cut the ribbon Wednesday in Russell Springs on the $29 million parts manufacturing facility.

The company began renovating the building last fall. Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the 64,000-square-foot plant will make parts for companies such as Ford, BMW, Mercedes, Audi and others.

The state has approved the company for tax incentives of up to $4 million.
