Carolina Technical Plastics Corporation has broken ground on a U.S. $11 million industry in North Carolina, U.S. scheduled for completion Sept. 25. More than 100 state and local officials and business leaders greeted officials of Wirthwein AG, the German parent company of the new plant expected 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 they have long been a supplier of BSH Home Appliances in the U.S. and in Europe and an assortment of state, county and city incentives, including a $675,000 performance grant from Craven County. Wirthwein is based in Creglingen, Germany, and employs 300 at six plants manufacturing injection molded plastic parts and mold technology used in the home appliance industries.

Clemens Schaller, executive vice president of American manufacturing and engineering for BSH Home Appliances, called Wirthwein "a very important supplier to our operation, particularly our laundry division."

He said the time frame for Carolina Technical Plastics startup injects "a lot of pressure in the project but we are pretty sure we are going to be successful." Schaller said BSH's own expansion in progress for just over a year will launch preliminary operations in March. Though not yet geared for mass hiring, BSH will be starting some job fairs at the end of March or early April. (New Bern Sun Journal)
