CLINTON, Tenn. (AP) - Automotive parts maker Nelson Global Products is expanding operations at facilities in Tennessee and Illinois.

The Stougton, Wis.-based maker of exhausts and tubular products is also closing a facility in Peoria, Ill., as it restructures its operations amid increasing product offerings and production.

The company says the 34 workers at the Peoria plant will be offered similar positions at one of two plants in nearby Morton, Ill. About 10 new employees are being hired at the Clinton, Tenn., plant in Anderson County.

Nelson's products include high end mufflers and silencers and other components for both newly assembled and aftermarket vehicles. The company has several other plants in the United States, Australia, India, Brazil and China.
