West has completed expansion work at its Kinston, NC manufacturing facility. The expanded plant provides additional compounding and custom manufacturing capabilities and will bring more than 150 new jobs to Kinston and surrounding communities. The facility was badly damaged by an explosion in January 2003.
“The opening marks the culmination of West’s promise to rebuild our Kinston facility and to come back stronger than ever,” said West’s chairman and chief executive officer, Donald E. Morel, Jr., Ph.D. “We are grateful to the Kinston community, Lenoir County and the state of North Carolina for sharing in this vision and we look forward to continued growth and success.”
“West is extremely pleased to announce the completion of this new state-of-the-art compounding and molding facility,” said Jimmy Adams, plant manager, West, Kinston. “This celebration reflects the many faces of the Kinston community.”
