A new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is bound for Gaston County.
Gov. Roy Cooper announced Thursday that German-based manufacturer, Heyco-Werk USA, will spend nearly $13 million to build the auto-plastic site at Apple Creek Corporate Center outside of the town of Dallas.
The expansion is expected to create 34 jobs with an average annual salary of $63,000.
It will be Heyco-Werk’s second location in North Carolina.
The company, which is a subsidiary of Heyco Group, makes plastic molded parts for BMW’s SUV models worldwide.
