Production of hybrid cars brings flurry of jobs to Missouri and Mississippi

Two new production plants that will manufacture hybrid and electric cars are expected to create hundred of new jobs and help the local economies in Mississippi and Montana.

In Mississippi, GreenTech Automotive Incorporated has announced plans to begin production at its Horn Lake manufacturing facility over the next three years until the construction of a larger new plant is completed in Tunica County, according to the DeSoto Times.

The news agency reports that production at the Horn Lake site is expected to begin by the end of October.

The company said that it has entered into a contract with an undisclosed Danish company to make the new alternative energy automobiles and has promised to create 350 jobs over the next several years as a result of the deal.

In Missouri, Emerald Automotive has announced it will set up shop in the St. Louis area.

The newly-formed British company said that the new St. Louis facility will build more than 15,000 environmentally friendly delivery vans and create approximately 600 new jobs over the next four years.

The vans will initially be produced for export to Europe, but the company told KTVI News that the collaboration could potentially manufacture the vans for domestic use in the future.
