Good news for the hometown...

An Alabama-based company that manufactures wheel and drum components for heavy trucks and trailers will invest nearly $25 million in a state-of-the art plant near Tell City, company and local officials announced Wednesday.

When operational in January, the facility will be the most advanced manufacturing facility in the county and will employ a projected 82 people at an average hourly wage of $14. Site work for a new 108,000-square-foot facility could begin as early as next week.

82 jobs doesn't sound like much to me as I sit here in San Diego, but there, it's a good deal. There's also the construction costs to consider, many of which will benefit the local economy too.
