Moog Music plans to move NC offices


ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- A North Carolina based musical instrument company plans to move its operations closer to Asheville's downtown.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that Moog Music officials announced the move Friday.

The company currently is located in Asheville but plans to renovate four buildings just north of downtown. Moog is named for Bob Moog who created the first music synthesizer. He moved to Asheville in 1978 and the company makes synthesizers, guitars and other electronic music instruments.

Company president Mike Adams said the new facility will house Moog's 35 workers and he plans to add as many as 15 more jobs over the next three years. The new location will have space for musicians to test products.
