Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has announced that Tenneco, an automotive industry supply company, will expand its production lines and add 350 employees at its northeast Georgia facility.
Authorities say the expansion will take place at the Lake Forest, Ill.-based firm's Hartwell manufacturing facility. Automotive shock absorbers and struts are produced at the Georgia plant.
Tenneco has operated in Hart County since the 1960s, and already employs a mix of more than 750 full and part-time workers at the Hartwell facility.
Hartwell is about 100 miles northeast of Atlanta.
