NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - An automotive parts supplier is expanding in East Tennessee and creating 100 jobs.

Officials of SL Tennessee, Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty announced the $14 million expansion at SL's plant in Clinton. The parts supplier to General Motors has expanded its Clinton operation four times in the last decade.

The Korean-owned company manufactures gear shifters, parking brakes and lighting products for GM.

When the new expansion is completed next spring, the plant will have 500,000 square feet under roof.

SL-Tennessee is organized under SL-America, which has three facilities in North America and over 6,000 employees worldwide.
