The U.S. subsidiary of a South Korean company has broken ground for a plant will employ about 400 people in Montgomery.
Executives from DAS North America and elected leaders were on hand for a ceremony held Thursday at the Montgomery Industrial Park.
The company makes seats for Kia and Hyundai vehicles. It's building a 300,000-square-foot plant in the capital city.
The company already employs about 100 people at a temporary site, and 300 new jobs will be added.
The $37 million project is supposed to be complete next year.
