TimesDaily/Matt McKean

The expansion of an Illinois-based lighting company is poised to bring 275 new jobs to their plant in Muscle Shoals.

North American Lighting is planning a $36 million expansion and the Shoals Economic Development Authority agreed Tuesday to allocate $260,000 from its economic development fund toward the project. The Shoals Industrial Development Committee is set to meet Thursday to vote on whether approve the funding.
