LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WTHR) — Subaru of Indiana Automotive will be adding 350 new jobs to its Lafayette plant.

The company announced on Tuesday a $158 million investment to add a new service parts facility and a transmission assembly shop on the plant’s 820-acre campus.

“We are proud to continue investing in Indiana,” said Scott Brand, senior vice president of administration and quality. “We also appreciate the tremendous support these plans have received from the state, Tippecanoe County, and the city of Lafayette.”

Subaru has not yet said when a job fair will be held to fill those positions.

In November, the plant held a job fair to fill 250 production jobs.

In 2017, a $140 million investment in the facility led to 200 new jobs.

Around 50 percent of Subaru’s sold in North America are built in Indiana.
