FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - An auto supplier is planning to build a $110 million plant in central Kentucky that’s expected to create 216 full-time jobs.

Gov. Matt Bevin’s office said Thursday that Thai Summit America Corp. plans to begin construction in May on a 220,000-square-foot facility in the Nelson County Industrial Park at Bardstown.

Once the first phase of construction is completed at the end of 2016, the factory will begin delivering stamped and welded aluminum assemblies to the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville.

To encourage the investment, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $5 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program. It also was approved for up to $1 million in tax incentives through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act.
