The Paris, Ill.-based company expects to begin operations in January and produce 1.2 million headlamps a year by 2014.
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said the state's automotive supplier base continues to grow. "I am pleased that North American Lighting has found that Alabama has an excellent business climate for expansion," Bentley said in a prepared release. Working closely with existing industries and communities to create new jobs is a goal of his administration, he said.
North American Lighting, which manufactures automotive exterior lighting, has three manufacturing facilities in Southern Illinois and a technical center in Farmington Hills, Mich.
