Maury lands $33M metals processor plant

The largest family-owned metal processor and distributor in North America will invest almost $33 million to build a new service center in Columbia. The 105,000-square-foot Samuel Son & Co. plant will create 42 jobs. Its machines will be able to shape steel and aluminum up to 84 inches wide, primarily for the region's auto manufacturers. State officials say the facility has doubled in size from when discussions began with Samuel executives.

Car seat maker will invest $16M, hire 350+ people in Spring Hill

Global auto parts manufacturer Magna International will spend $16 million to build its fifth Tennessee factory just north of General Motors' Spring Hill complex — which is getting two new models in the coming years — where it will build seat assemblies. The company, which also runs a plant in Columbia, plans to hire 357 people for Spring Hill over the next two years, with 75 workers to start. And it is moving quickly to get ready for GM: Its new 122,500-square-foot facility is expected to be up and running by January.

"This new facility demonstrates our commitment to GM in delivering high-quality products through our world-class manufacturing initiatives," said Mike Bisson, president of Magna Seating. "We are pleased to support our customer and look forward to potential growth opportunities."

Magna is one of the bigger names in the auto supplier sector. The company runs more than 60 manufacturing or assembly plants across the United States and employes more than 23,000 people.
