A Canadian automotive parts manufacturer plans to build a plant in Riverside that will create up to 290 jobs and supply engine cradles for the nearby General Motors Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City, Kan. Gov. Jay Nixon’s office said Martinrea International Inc.’s first plant in Missouri will be 275,000 square feet and will manufacture welded, corrosion-resistant engine cradles and automotive assemblies.

“Global companies like Martinrea are continuing to grow and invest in Missouri because of our experienced workforce, low taxes and stable economic climate,” Gov. Nixon said in a statement.

Martinrea has 38 manufacturing facilities in eight countries — including 12 in the United States — and more than 12,000 employees, according to the company’s website.
