Owens Corning To Expand Production, Add Jobs At Aiken, S.C., Facility
Toledo, Ohio-based glass fiber reinforcements and engineered materials producer Owens Corning is
planning to invest $36 million to add a nonwoven glass fiber mat production line at its Aiken,
S.C., facility, with the expectation of adding 24 jobs. The line will manufacture materials for use
in industrial and construction applications and is scheduled to be operational in mid-2012.
"We are pleased to have the ongoing support of the local community and the state as we seek to expand the facility, add to the economic strength of Aiken County and South Carolina, and meet the demands of our customers in the future," said Marcio Sandri, vice president and general manager Americas, Owens Corning Composite Solutions Business.
The added jobs will make Owens Corning eligible for tax credits from the State of South Carolina.
