WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- Nutrition and weight-loss supplement-maker Herbalife is revamping a defunct Dell Inc. computer manufacturing plant in North Carolina for an East Coast production center that will employ about 500 in three years. Company officials and Gov. Bev Perdue said Wednesday that Los Angeles-based Herbalife will invest about $130 million to buy and equip the 750,000-square-foot Dell plant near Winston-Salem that closed two years ago. Herbalife will get $1 million up-front from North Carolina taxpayers, and up to $5.5 million more in state tax breaks if the company meets its targets and sustains them for 11 years. The company also could collect $3.4 million in local incentives. State officials said the jobs will pay an average wage of $40,200, below the Forsyth County average of $42,600.
