Bookmark and Share
Lydall, a manufacturer of specialty products for the automotive industry, is expanding its factory in Hamptonville, a move that will add 170 new jobs to the workforce.Gov. Bev Perdue said the company plans to invest $18.5 million during the next three years. In addition to the Hamptonville expansion, the company said it will lease a 300,000-square-foot facility off Highway 601.Salaries for the new job will average just more than $25,000."It's great to see Lydall significantly increase their investment in Yadkin County, because they see firsthand the value of doing business in North Carolina," Perdue said. "Creating jobs is my No. 1 priority, especially in areas of the state that have been hit so hard by the decline in our traditional manufacturing industries."The company said its automotive products protect people and components from extreme heat and insulate from noise and vibration.A company spokesman said an increase in customer demand prompted the need for the expansion.He said hiring for the positions will start soon, and anyone who is interested can contact the Yadkin Employment Security Commission or the Wilkes County Employment Security Commission.

    My comment was in reference to State employees. They've had their wages cut once already & have been told it's going to happen again, and that's just for the ones who get to keep their jobs. Most people that have these jobs do feel blessed to have them, but it's very hard to make ends meet when pay goes down, and daily expenses & insurance go's not a complaint, it's a fact.

    1qaz2wsx good point there...good jobs are needed here, sounds like Lydall does not fit that bill!

    Just be thankful people. You are some of the most ungrateful people I've ever seen. Yadkin County should be proud of the comments coming from Yadkin's finest. At least someone will be thankful just to be able to put food on their table and keep a roof over their head. Hard work never hurt anyone that had to do it. Get over yourselves and go to work. It was one of your complaints with the new administration, now that you have oppurtunity to work you complain,Wow Never can please people like that.

    Not sure how Perdue is responsible for pay cuts from non government jobs but for increases in insurance rates simple thank their boy Richard Burr!

    Yes 170 jobs are great but at $25,000 per year. That's about $12.00 per hour. Once you take out taxes and ins. you make more on unemployment per week.

    This company has no morals or standards. I have in-laws that work here and they haven't had 2 days off in a row in 3 months. They work people to death for little pay. I don't know if this is a good thing or not. Its more than just creating jobs. Its about creating the right jobs!!!
