NASHVILLE (AP) - Parts supplier Aisin Automotive Casting Tennessee Inc. is planning a $54 million expansion in Anderson County and will add 81 jobs over the next two years.

Company President Stephen Barnes said in a release Tuesday that the expansion in Clinton stems from increasing sales of engine components in North America.

Aisin supplies parts to General Motors, Nissan and Toyota.

The company's 524,000-square-foot facility along Interstate 75 opened in 2004 and employs nearly 600 people. The plant casts, machines and assembles engine components likes pistons and water and oil pumps.

State Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said the expansion reflects the strength of the Tennessee's automotive sector, which includes 900 manufacturers and suppliers.
