BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — Kentucky officials say an automotive supplier is planning a $15 million expansion of its facilities in Bowling Green.
Gov. Steve Beshear's office says NHK of America Suspension Components Inc., or NASCO, intends to construct a new building next to its existing facility in the south-central Kentucky city.
Beshear's office said Thursday the project will be completed in the next two years.
NASCO's facility will house a compact line for the manufacturing of automotive suspension coil springs. The company also plans to add other equipment for the processing of steel wire used in suspension coils.
The new building will allow NASCO to increase its production by 20 percent.
A subsidiary of the NHK International Corp., NASCO established in Bowling Green in 1986 and employs 280 people.
