Tasus Corp. has picked Georgetown, Texas, for its second North American factory, as part of an expansion to serve Toyota Motor Corp. and other carmakers and auto suppliers in the South.
Tasus and Georgetown officials announced Dec. 10 that the Bloomington-based company had selected the city, which is about 30 miles from Austin, Texas. The area is not far from Toyota's assembly plant now under construction in San Antonio.
The firm expects to invest $13.3 million at the site within five years and employ about 100. The injection molder makes a variety of functional components, including fluid reservoirs and lighting housings and lenses. Tasus is a subsidiary of Tsuchiya Co. Ltd. of Nagoya, Japan.
