GM supplier plans on adding 100 jobs in Whitley County

Rosa Salter Rodriguez, Journal Gazette

A third supplier to General Motors – a company based in Columbia City – has announced plans to expand and add jobs.

Advanced Assembly LLC will invest $7 million in production capacity and about 100 additional workers, according to a news release issued Friday by the Whitley County Economic Development Corp.

The company manufactures and assembles seating systems for Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks produced at GM's Fort Wayne assembly plant in Lafayette Township.

Last week, two other GM suppliers, Android Industries and its sister company, Avancez, announced expansions totaling $14.7 million in Allen County facilities.

Advanced Assembly is a joint venture between Comer Holdings LLC and Lear Corp., both based in Michigan.
