Selma is getting an economic boost. A leading Hyundai parts supplier, the Lear Corporation, is locating several automotive suppliers in the Dallas County city.
The announcement came Friday morning from Selma Mayor James Perkins, who withheld additional details about the exact number of companies -- the number of jobs created and other financial details. It's expected to employ at least 100 people, maybe even more. Perkins also said the city is completing plans to begin construction for the suppliers.
Its unclear when the companies would start operations. Lear Corporation, ranked as the 16th fastest growing company in the U-S, will locate the plant in the Craig Industrial Park on U-S 80 in Selma.
