ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) – An automotive supplier is opening a plant expansion that will employ 100 people in southeast Alabama.

Gov. Robert Bentley is among the leaders who will be on hand Wednesday afternoon for a ribbon-cutting event at HS Automotive Alabama in Enterprise.

The South Korean company makes pressure hoses, tubing and weather stripping for Hyundai, Kia and Chrysler.

This is the second time HS Automotive Alabama has expanded in Enterprise. The company broke ground on its original factory in 2003 and announced its first expansion in 2006.

The company announced the $12 million, 65,000-square-foot expansion last year.
