Carolina Technical Plastics Corporation has broken ground on a U.S. $11-million (10.4 million Euro) facility in North Carolina, U.S. that is scheduled for completion on Sept. 25, 2003, reports the New Bern Sun Journal. Wirthwein AG, the German parent company of the new plant, expects to employ about 70 workers when production begins in early 2004. The company’s decision to locate in Craven County was influenced by the fact it has long been a supplier of BSH Home Appliances in the U.S. and in Europe, and that it received an assortment of state, county, and city incentives, including a U.S. $675,000 performance grant from Craven County.
Wirthwein is based in Creglingen, Germany, and employs 300 at six plants, which manufacture injection molded plastic parts and mold technology used in the home appliance industries.
