The U.S. automotive industry is making strides early in 2013, which is reflected by the increased hiring by several firms.

Automotive parts supplier Vistech Manufacturing Solutions will expand the workforce at its plant in Jasper, Alabama, this year. Alabama Live reports that the company plans to increase its hiring to help boost the city's economy. In fact, the new hires could bring roughly $3 million in annual revenue to Jasper.

In Michigan, Nexteer Automotive is investing $70 million in the local economy. According to the Detroit Free Press, the company plans to hire more staff members for its Saginaw, Michigan, headquarters. Company leaders noted that the business is also investigating new technologies to further expand its operations.

"With our continued focus on innovation and customer-focused steering solutions, Nexteer continues to diversify its customer base," Nexteer CEO Laurent Bresson told the news source.

New hires can substantially affect the U.S. automotive industry and the national economy. These staff members could provide valuable contributions to their employers, and businesses could increase their profits and boost their productivity. Meanwhile, clients around the world can receive reliable support, which could lead them to invest in these firms.
