Plastics maker Ernie Green Industries (EGI) has selected Asheboro, North Carolina, for a new $1.75 million facility. The company will create 96 jobs as part of the expansion. The One North Carolina Fund is supporting the project with an $80,000 grant.
"The new location will allow us to better serve the customers in the region and support the diversification of our business and long-term growth to provide a higher level of services to our customers in the area," said Larry Jutte, EGI president. "We have been very pleased with the business friendly nature of the state of North Carolina and the Randolph County team who have helped us in making the decision to call this area our next home."
FPE NC, LLC, a subsidiary of EGI, will locate a full-service plastic molding and assembly operation in Randolph County. EGI is a national supplier of auto parts and has five plants in Ohio and Florida.
