New plant will bring more than 100 jobs to Russell Co.

RUSSELL CO, Ky. (WKYT) - A new plant will bring more than 100 jobs to Russell County.

Governor Steve Beshear helped cut the ribbon for Germany-based Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems.

The company makes parts for companies such as Ford, BMW, Mercedes and Audi.

The plant will have 155 full-time jobs.

This opening comes on the heels of a major economic hit to the county.

The Fruit of the Loom plant announced earlier this month that it will close later this year.

More than 600 people will lose their jobs.
