Lydall, a manufacturer of interior and exterior products for automobiles, is expanding its facility in Yadkinville and plans to create 170 jobs over the next three years.
The Connecticut-based company is receiving a $300,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
Lydall’s automotive products protect passengers from extreme heat and insulate them from noise and vibration.
The company will spend $18.5 million making improvements to its Hamptonville facility, which employs 500. It will lease additional space in a new facility in Yadkinville, about 25 miles west of Winston-Salem.
The new jobs will pay an average annual wage of $25,294 plus benefits, which is below the Yadkin County average of $27,716.
