Gov. Bob Riley and Montgomery officials are expected to announce this morning construction of a Hyundai Heavy Industries plant that will bring several hundred jobs to Montgomery.

The plant will make electric transformers out of a planned 220,000-square-foot facility on 100 acres in Montgomeryâ¿¿s Interstate Industrial Park, according to a news report. The new $90 million plant is expected to add 480 jobs, the report said.

The announcement is set for 10:15 a.m. Friday at the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce.
