CLAYTON, N.C. (AP) -- Gov. Beverly Perdue says Caterpillar Inc. will expand its manufacturing plant in Clayton, adding almost 200 jobs over five years and investing $33 million. Perdue said today that two state grants are partially responsible for Caterpillar's decision to expand in Johnston County. Upon completion, the Clayton facility will be the world source for several models of small wheel loaders. In addition, engineering and design work for building construction products will take place at a new engineering and test facility near Caterpillar's Clayton manufacturing plant. The overall average wage for the new jobs will be more than $41,000, plus benefits. The average annual wage in Johnston County is more than $31,000. (Copyright 2012 by The Associated Press.
