A textile manufacturer is expanding its plant in Kings Mountain and expects to create 62 jobs over the next three years.
Kings Plush, which does business in the state as Specialty Textiles, will spend $4.9 million expanding its Kings Mountain plant, which makes upholstery fabrics for residential furniture.
The company currently has 170 employees at the Cleveland County facility, located about 30 miles west of Charlotte.
Kings Plus received a $56,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
The company said in a release that salaries for the new jobs will have an average annual payroll of $1.4 million, which works out to $22,580 per worker.
That's below the Cleveland County average of $30,710.
