northern Alabama jobs


An auto parts manufacturing company has announced plans to build a plant in northern Alabama and create 140 new jobs in its first five years of operation.

Gov. Robert Bentley announced Thursday that Muri, Switzerland-based REHAU, Inc. is planning to open a research and development facility in Cullman.

State officials say the company, which was founded in Germany, is spending about $2.5 million on the planned 20,000 square-foot facility.
