Kings Mountain Company Looking to Fill 62 Positions
RALEIGH – Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that Kings Plush, Inc., doing business as Specialty Textiles, Inc (STI) will expand their manufacturing facility to increase production capacity for residential upholstery fabrics in Kings Mountain, N.C.
The company expects to create 62 full time jobs and invest $4.9 million over three years. The project was made possible in part by a $56,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds. These grants also require and are contingent upon local matches.
Other partners that helped with this project include the North Carolina Department of Commerce, North Carolina Community Colleges, Cleveland County Economic Development Cleveland County, and the City of Kings Mountain.
