CMI Enterprises, a maker of automotive soft-trims, is planning a new manufacturing plant in Rutherfordton, North Carolina. The move will create 53 jobs, and the company will spend $697,000. The One North Carolina Fund has extended the company a $33,000 grant for the project.
"CMI is looking forward to becoming a valued member of the Rutherford County community," said Michael Novick, company CEO. "As we began searching for a location for our new southeastern facility, it became apparent that North Carolina, with its long textile heritage, and Rutherford County in particular, was the clear choice for us to carry out our plans to expand domestic manufacturing and help bring jobs back to the U.S."
The company will move its Miami, Florida operations to the Rutherfordton site. The company also has a manufacturing plant in Indiana, and will retain its company headquarters in Miami. CMI make soft-trims for the auto, bus, truck, RV, and commercial sectors.
