Tuscarora Yarns said today that it would open a new facility in Rowan County and create 124 jobs over the next three years.
The yarn manufacturer will invest $6.3 million moving its existing operations in China Grove to a larger facility in China Grove, about 35 miles northeast of Charlotte.
The company received a $146,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
The average annual wage for the new jobs will be $27,334, not including benefits. That's below the Rowan County average of $36,036.
