Plastics manufacturer to add 54 jobs in Rutherford County
Governor Bev Perdue on Feb. 27 announced that Alliance Precision Plastics Corp, an injection molding plastics and tooling manufacturer, will locate a facility in Rutherford County. The company plans to create 54 jobs and invest at least $300,000 during the next three years in Spindale. The project was made possible in part by a $48,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. The N.C. Department of Commerce's Bill Paynewas the developer on this project.
"Every day more companies are discovering that North Carolina's history of investing in education and job training has created a workforce second to none," Perdue said. "Those investments, and our support for infrastructure and transportation improvements, have built a top notch business climate that continues to attract global corporations, including advanced manufacturers like Alliance Precision Plastics."
Alliance Precision Plastics is headquartered in Rochester, N.Y. The company, established in 1954, is an injection molding plastics and tooling manufacturer that primarily produces parts for commercial, industrial and medical companies. Alliance is also a 50 percent owner in a joint-venture, Alliance-McAlpin NY LLC, which operates in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
Alliance intends to acquire the assets of Molding Dynamics Inc, an injection molding operation in Spindale, as part of the company's expansion to North Carolina. As part of the acquisition, MDI workers who were recently laid off will have an opportunity to apply for new positions with Alliance. Read more.
