China's Uniquetex, LLC, Inc. is investing in the US for the first time, putting in $31.6 million in a production facility in Grove in Cleveland County.

Over the next five years will build a workforce of 150 people for the fabric-making facility, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory's office said in a press release.

Textile manufacturing is one of North Carolina's greatest traditional industries, and it is still growing,” said Governor McCrory. “Our state is the ideal destination for globally-positioned, innovation-driven textile companies like Uniquetex.”

Uniquetex, LLC manufactures nonwoven fabrics for use by medical and healthcare providers, as well as other industries. The company is a joint venture between Foshan Nanhai Beautiful Nonwoven Co., Ltd., one of China's largest nonwoven textile businesses and Wenzhou Chaolong Textile Machinery Co., Ltd., a Zhejiang, China-based developer of equipment and technologies for nonwoven textile manufacturing.

“Uniquetex's selection of Cleveland County highlights all the reasons North Carolina leads the Southeast in manufacturing employment,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary John E. Skvarla. “I am confident that our state's productive workforce, competitive costs and ready access to global markets will strongly support the company's ambitious growth strategy.”

Uniquetex intends to hire 150 workers at its Cleveland County operations. Positions will include machine operators, technicians, customer service representatives and others. Salaries will vary by position but will average $36,313 per year. Cleveland County's overall average wage is currently $35,885 per year.

“We are extremely excited to start up our first US operations in Cleveland County, N.C. The combination of a skilled workforce, access for quality transportation infrastructure and the pro-business attitude of the community is what attracted us here,” said Benny Deng, Uniquetex CEO/President. (SH)
