Phoenix car parts company to expand production, hire 10 more employees

PHOENIX (AP) Phoenix car maker Phoenix Car Parts Inc. said Monday it will hire 10 additional employees as it works to expand its production in Mexico and China, and said it will begin offering its parts in the U.S. in the coming weeks.

Phoenix has said it needs to boost production in both Mexico and its biggest supplier, China, to meet surging demand for cars.

The company said it expects to begin selling parts in 2019, after it expands its production and hires the additional staff.
