TOCCOA, Ga. (AP) - A German automotive parts manufacturer is planning to develop a plant in northeast Georgia.

Gov. Nathan Deal said in a statement that NIFCO KTW is planning to invest $27 million in the facility and plans to create 200 jobs within the first five years.

Officials say the facility will supply injection-molded parts to BMW, Mercedes-Benz USA and other automakers.

Deal says the company is planning to build a 130,000 square-foot facility and may expand the facility in the future.

Officials say KTW employs 350 people and is based in Weissenburg, Germany.
