Obama to visit expanding auto parts manufacturer near Asheville

The White House on Monday announced that President Barack Obama will visit Linamar Corporation during his trip to North Carolina the day after the State of the Union address.

The Canadian auto parts manufacturer has a facility in Arden, about 15 miles south of Asheville. The president's midday remarks are closed to the public but open to the media.

The location suggest that Obama will focus on the economy during his visit. The company expanded its North Carolina facility in June 2012, promising to add 250 jobs over five years and make a $75 million investment, according to state commerce officials. The state offered the company $2.6 million in incentives if certain job-creation targets are met.
