Chris Gregoire said Friday. Speaking on a conference call from Germany, where she had attended the debut of the electric vehicle that will use parts from the SGL Automotive factory in Moses Lake, Gregoire said discussions are already under way to expand the facility. Construction of the factory employs 200 workers and the factory will have 80 jobs when it is up and running.
