Compiled ByJill Jusko Even before it has completed construction of its new manufacturing plant in Canton, Miss., Nissan North America has announced plans to expand the plant by 1 million square feet. The company says it will invest $500 million for the 1 million-square-foot addition to the 2.5 million-square-foot plant currently being built.

Production at the Canton plant is slated to begin in the spring of 2003.
