RALEIGH, N.C. -- A company that recycles automotive catalytic converters plans to create 98 jobs in North Carolina when it locates its production plant in Burke County.
Gov. Bev Perdue said Tuesday that VSA LLC will invest $4.5 million in the next two years for the plant in Morganton. The project will receive a $98,000 performance-based grant from the One North Carolina Fund if it meets certain job creation and local match requirements.
The average annual wage for the new jobs will be $30,000 - above the Burke County average of nearly $29,000 a year.
VSA has its headquarters and a pilot plant in Morganton.
