Automotive industry hiring continues swing upwards in recent months, as improving business has led not only to a business relocation creating 250 jobs in Indiana but another plant in Ohio exceeding expectations with more than a thousand new hires.

Automotive parts supplier Exo-s US plans to move its operations from its current location in Michigan to Lagrange County in Indiana, creating as many as 250 jobs over the next three years, according to Indiana's News Center. The company plans to invest $6.8 million in its relocation efforts and its hiring plans include machine operators, manufacturing associates, technical personnel and engineering experts. Hiring will begin early next year.

One state over, an automotive assembly complex has added more jobs than initially expected to its staff, according to the Toledo Blade. Chrysler's Toledo Assembly Complex has added more than 1,800 jobs this year, well beyond its initial predictions of 1,105 when it initially committed to upgrades in 2011. The plant now has the most employees at its factory as tracked in the past decade – more than 4,000 are now on staff as automotive sales continue to rise. One model created at the assembly plant, the Wrangler, has seen sales rise by 12 percent.
