Rockwell: The company said its automotive division will expand operations at its York, S.C., plant, resulting in the creation of 100 jobs there by 1995.
Rockwell said the $5-million expansion will include the installation of a new production line and the relocation of an existing line from its Canadian plant in Bracebridge, Ontario.
Installation of the production lines, which will manufacture automotive window components, will begin later this month. They are expected to be operational by September, according to the company.
The Bracebridge facility will use the manufacturing space made available by the relocation to increase production of automotive seat adjusting systems. The relocation of the production line won’t affect employment at the Canadian plant, Rockwell said.
Rockwell Automotive manufactures components and systems for passenger cars, light trucks, medium- and heavy-duty trucks and off-highway equipment. Its parent company, based in Seal Beach, is involved in automation, avionics, aerospace, defense electronics, telecommunications, automotive components and graphic systems. Its sales last year reached $11 billion.
