LEXINGTON (AP) — An electric motor manufacturing company plans to expand its current operations in Tennessee, an investment of $18 million expected to create 300 jobs.

According to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, Nidec Motor Company will be adding new products and will modify its existing facility in Henderson County.

The company features a range of large and small high-efficiency motors that serve industrial, residential and commercial markets. Nidec recently acquired Leroy-Somer Americas.

State officials say Nidec currently employs more than 200 Tennesseans. State economic development commissioner Bob Rolfe said the company's growth is one of Lexington's largest economic development announcements since 2011.
