The ceremonial groundbreaking of a $50 million automotive parts manufacturing facility in Murray is scheduled for July 23. 

State and local officials announced last December that South Korea-based DAE-IL Corporation is building a 295,000 square-foot facility in the Murray West Industrial Park, creating 120 full-time jobs.

The Murray-Calloway Economic Development Corporation, the Murray-Calloway Industrial Authority and the Town & Gown partnership between the City of Murray and Murray State University host the event.

The company will produce gears for the automotive industry at the Murray location.

Following a brief shovel ceremony outside at 2 p.m., speaking will be inside the adjacent Murray-West Spec Building.
