J&L Machine and Fabrication Expands Stanley, North Carolina, Manufacturing Operations

J&L Machine and Fabrication, a steel fabrication and machining provider, plans to expand operations in Stanley, North Carolina. The more than $2.1 million project is expected to create 33 jobs in Gaston County.

The investment will increase production capacity to meet growing customer demand.

“This expansion aligns with our strategy as a solutions center, allowing us to improve the service level to our global OEM customers with new added capabilities and capacity, and enabling us to create new jobs supporting the Stanley community and the State of North Carolina,” said Danny Tawil, J&L’s Chief Operating Officer.

A performance-based grant of $70,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help J&L expand in North Carolina. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All One NC grants require matching participation from local governments and any award is contingent upon that condition being met.

“North Carolina companies know the benefits of operating in our state better than anyone,” noted N.C. Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “As we continue growing our automotive and electric vehicle sectors, companies like J&L Machine and Fabrication can help increase our supply chain by making high-quality parts right here in North Carolina.”

Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, North Carolina Community College System, Gaston College, Gaston County, Gaston County Economic Development Commission, Gaston County Workforce Development Board, NCWorks Gaston, and the Town of Stanley.

J&L Machine and Fabrication is a provider of high-precision steel parts for heavy industrial equipment and machines. The company engineers and fabricates complex parts with a full range of services including cutting, forming, bending, welding, painting, and assembling processes.
