Canadian Furniture Manufacturer Opening First U.S. Plant in North Carolina

Talon Systems Inc., an Ontario, Canada-based manufacturer of household storage cabinets and furniture, will invest US$5.9 million to open its first U.S. manufacturing plant in Statesville, North Carolina, according to the North Carolina governor's office. The company plans to create 90 new jobs over the next three years. "Trained work force [and] proximity to customer market and raw material made North Carolina the obvious choice," says Derek Okada, Talon's president. The state has provided the company a grant of $46,590, contingent on job creation, that must be matched by local governments.
