Bluestar Silicones, China, a producer of specialty silicone products for textile coatings and numerous other applications, will invest $19.8 million to open a facility in Charlotte, creating 125 jobs at that location. The company will consolidate its U.S. manufacturing operations into one facility and has received a $340,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund to help finance the opening of the plant. 

"We are excited about this move to Mecklenburg County and appreciate the efforts of North Carolina to make this a win-win for both North Carolina and Bluestar Silicones," said J. Christopher York, president, Bluestar Silicones North America, East Brunswick, N.J. "For Bluestar Silicones, this move is an important step in implementing an aggressive growth strategy to become a world leading supplier of silicones in the coming five years."
