More auto jobs headed to Detroit

DETROIT -- Hundreds of jobs are coming to Detroit.

This week, the city cut the ribbon on Detroit Manufacturing Systems, a new auto parts plant.

It's a joint venture between Rush Group and French-based manufacturer, Faurecia.

The goal is to add 500 jobs over three years.

"We hope to have by the end of this year at least 140 jobs secured before January, and by the end of next year we hope to be closing in on that 500 maybe about 440," said Andrea Rush of Detroit Manufacturing Systems.

DMS will be located in the Gateway Industrial Park.

The company already landed a contract to make cockpit parts for Ford.
