FRANKFORT, KY - Hitachi Automotive Products plans to expand its Harrodsburg, KY, manufacturing plant and add more than 100 new jobs "in the near future."

Gov. Steve Beshear said Tuesday that the expansion would add production lines for high-pressure fuel pumps.

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has given preliminary approval of nearly $2.9 million in tax incentives for Hitachi to expand the plant.
