The Korean automotive company HSAA opened a brand new building that will hold 100 workers but also announced today another 200 jobs will be open once an addition to the facility is constructed.

"It's also a compliment that a company wants to expand. It's a compliment to the area it's a compliment to the work force and I'm very proud of this. HSAA is a great company it's a tier one supplier for our automotive companies. They do a great job and I'm happy to be here today," said Governor Bentley.

 "To know that the 100 jobs were here but to know that 200 new jobs are going to be created... It's exciting. It really is," said Enterprise Mayor, Kenneth Boswell.

 The $20 million expansion took eight months to construct. It will be home to some of the most high tech assembly line programs and robots.

"Robotics, that's where it is and a lot of our automotive companies if you go around and visit the automotive production companies, the robots are used in so many of those companies," said Bentley.

They are high skilled jobs but Harry Kim, the president of the company says they will train those they hire.

"We can train when new people come. If anybody wants to work and they have a good attitude, that's fine," said Harry Kim, President of HSAA.

The parts manufactured by the company supply Chrysler, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and General Motors. Construction on the new addition should begin this August.
