State economic development officials say auto transmission products supplier U.S. Tsubaki Automotive plans to expand its facility in Portland, adding 70 jobs in the process.
The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development says the company's expansion in Sumner County represents a $1.9 million investment.
Tsubaki Automotive offers state-of-the-art power transmission products. The company supplies complete chain drive systems for engine and transmissions, including cam drives, balancer drives and oil pump drives. The systems typically include chains, tensioners, guides and sprockets.
Tsubaki's customers include General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Nissan and Honda.
The company plans to host a job fair Feb. 11 at the Sumner County Career Center.
