Automotive suppliers are seeing the benefits as the automotive industry kicks back into gear, with hiring taking precedence in the center of the U.S.

Auto sales have soundly rebounded from the market lows of 2009, currently selling at a pace of 15.3 million through the end of the year, and hiring is booming throughout the country as a result. Quality Synthetic Rubber in Twinsburg, Ohio has added 100 employees in the last four years, according to Crain's Cleveland, while Die-Matic Corp in Brooklyn Heights has added 40 workers and a Ford Plant in Brook Park may add as many as 750 people in the coming months. Some supply managers have reported that at times they're actually struggling to find enough employees to meet their needs.

Another example of success in the region comes from Ligonier, Indiana, where converter and exhaust producer Tenneco plans to hire 100 more workers, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal. A new line from Chrysler was the catalyst for the job growth, which will see new machine operators, welders, material handlers and more join the company's ranks.
