Perdue visiting Cary firm's HQ for jobs unveiling

CARY, NC (AP) -- North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue is planning
to be on hand for a jobs announcement at the world headquarters of
a privately owned company that makes products for manufacturing
companies.

Perdue has scheduled an announcement Tuesday at the headquarters
of Lord Corp. in Cary. The governor's schedule doesn't name the
company, and spokesmen for Perdue and the company did not return
calls late Monday.

Perdue's schedule says she'll visit the address of Lord Corp.,
which was founded by Pennsylvania patent attorney Hugh Lord in 1924
and has been in the Raleigh suburb for 16 years.

Lord Corp. says its sales exceed $600 million a year for
products that control vibration, motion and noise. The company has
been moving into solar energy and wind power products.
