An auto supply project is pumping another $12 million into Athens.

KC Logistics is coming to Athens and plans to hire 100 employees.

On Monday, the Athens City Council approved selling 65 acres, located at 116 Durham Drive for $250,000 to the company.

KC Logistics will transport seats from auto supplier TBAKI to Mazda Toyota Manufacturing.

Limestone County Economic Development Association President & CEO Bethany Shockney said the company will announce details later.

“We are very fortunate to have another company locate in Limestone County that supports Mazda Toyota and directly supports TBAKI in the City of Athens,” Shockney said.
