BMW, Gov. Gregoire making announcement in Seattle



SEATTLE (AP) — The companies planning to build a parts plant for lightweight BMW cars have scheduled a news conference Tuesday in Seattle with Gov. Chris Gregoire, who has been trying to locate the factory at Moses Lake.

The factory would manufacture carbon fibers and employ about 180 workers.

SGL Group and BMW AG have been looking at Moses Lake and at a location in Canada for the plant to supply an electric car being developed by BMW.
