Construction is beginning soon on a new manufacturing plant in Lafayette.
Heartland Automotive is building on Veterans Memorial Parkway so it can expand its business. The company makes car parts for Subaru and Toyota, and currently is on Kepner Drive in Lafayette.
Senior Vice President Ronan Miot says they’re running out of space at that facility.
"We want to be closer to our customers, to better service them as well. So, in the past couple years, we've expanded our production and we feel the need to expand and be closer to them is the right time, right now."
