KTH Parts Industries, an auto-parts supplier, said it plans to build a research and development center in Union County, a $6.7 million project that will result in the creation of 26 jobs over three years.

“This is an exciting next step in KTH Parts’ growth, which includes expanding our capabilities with our brand-new facility and increasing our Columbus region workforce,” Chris Millice, vice president of KTH, said in a statement.
