Sen. Richard Shelby’s visits to automotive industry plants in recent days are a positive sign of interest in Alabama’s fastest growing economic engine. Shelby toured Eissmann Automotive in Pell City and learned the company plans to create about 120 new jobs this year. The company produces a variety of components for automotive interiors. Their components are installed in a number of high quality vehicles including Corvette, Mercedes, Jeep and Tesla.

He also visited Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, where a $78 million expansion was recently announced, which will create about 50 new jobs—that brings new investment to more than a half billion dollars since March of 2011, with about 450 new jobs. Honda employs about 4,000 people at its Lincoln facility.
