North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced an expansion of the Continental facility located in Morganton. The company will add a new product line that results in the creation of 160 new jobs and a $40M investment in equipment and facility upgrades.
“This is a great project and we’re excited to announce it,” said Jeff Brittain, Chairman of the Burke County Commissioners. “Not only are the new jobs important but solidifying the existing jobs was key to the project. We hope this means Continental will be here in Burke County for a long time to come.”
