Spain-based Grupo Antolin says the company has signed a six-year lease on a building in Belvidere and preliminary operations at the plant are expected to begin in May.
Daimler-Chrysler announced plans last month to add 1,000 jobs and a second shift at its Belvidere auto plant. That's part of a $419 million expansion to accommodate production of up to four new vehicles.
Daimler-Chrysler also announced earlier this month it would build a new parts sorting center next to its automotive plant. That center would bring 500 jobs to the northern Illinois community.
