Within the next 18 months, Mercedes-Benz automotive suppliers will bring at least 2,400 jobs to Tuscaloosa County, according to The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama.

The salaries of these jobs are pretty hefty, starting at $23,000 to $143,000. This all stems from Mercedes $1.3 billion expansion in their plant located in Tuscaloosa County.

This is not only good for those who will get jobs, but for the economy around us.

There will be over 16 job types hiring, from logistics to manufacturing, and paint and body.
