More good news for Cleveland County as the town of Shelby just announced a major job increase. Metal Works Manufacturing Co. will be investing about $4 million over the next couple years, meaning some major wave of new hiring.
The company also remarked that the average salary for the new workers will be about $45,400 – roughly 30% higher than the average Cleveland County income of roughly $34,900.
The company currently produces parts for Boeing, Caterpillar, Bombardier, and several other major global manufacturers.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory showed up to the factory to make the announcement, “Nothing compares to North Carolina’s manufacturing workforce. This new company will find well-qualified employees to not only make armor for specialty vehicles but also manufacture lifts and material handling equipment. I admire companies that make things in our great state.”
