NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Auto parts supplier SL America will add 300 jobs in a $35 million expansion at its SL Tennessee LLC plant in Clinton.

A statement from Tennessee economic development director Matt Kisber's office said the new jobs in the planned $35 million expansion will be created by the end of 2010.

SL Tennessee is a parts supplier for Volkswagen, General Motors, Hyundai and KMG.

The Korean-owned Clinton facility opened in 2001. The statement said the plant builds gear shifters, parking brakes and lighting products.

The announcement follows Volkswagen's decision to award SL Tennessee a contract to make automatic shifter assemblies for the new VW plant at Chattanooga and to supply VW production in Mexico.
