BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

There are some pretty big things happening at Mercedes when it comes to Alabama's economy.

On Wednesday morning, Governor Robert Bentley and others will be at the plant in Vance for the groundbreaking of a new $70-million expansion. It is the new Mercedes Benz U.S. International Logistics Hub. The hub is set to be ready later this year and it will help support receiving, handling and sequencing for the plant's current and future products. About 600 people will work out of the building.

Mercedes is looking for a thousand new employees to help launch new products at the plant that will be rolling out in the next two years. May 10 is the deadline to apply. If you are interested, officials with Mercedes say do not wait. The hiring process is beginning before the deadline runs up.
