Mexico's Nutec Group to Build First U.S. Manufacturing Facility in North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C.—Nutec Group will develop a new advanced manufacturing facility in North Carolina, creating 61 new jobs during the next three years. The company also plans to invest $19.2 million in the town of Huntersville over the same period to construct a new 62,500-square-foot plant.

“North Carolina is connected with another first as Nutec chose our great state for its first United States manufacturing plant,” said Governor Pat McCrory in a statement. “Our manufacturing base continues to grow and strengthen.”

Nutec Group is an international company headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, with plants in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico; Berriz, Spain; and San Paulo, Brazil. With more than 40 years of experience, Nutec is a producer of high temperature insulation fibers. Nutec products are used in the fire protection, metal, glass, automotive, and petroleum industries.

“Nutec recognized that North Carolina’s highly skilled workforce is a great fit along with great location to make and distribute products to its U.S. and Canadian customers,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary John E. Skvarla in a statement. “This expansion sends a strong signal that manufacturing is alive and well in our state.”

The new jobs will include production and warehouse workers, maintenance, and quality control, with varied salaries by position. The added payroll of the new jobs will be approximately $2.5 million annually.

“Nutec is proud to announce an expansion of its manufacturing technology into the state of North Carolina,” said Nutec Operations Director Gerardo Muraira, in a statement. “North Carolina was chosen for the location, for the utility and transportation advantages, and the state contains an exceptional workforce. In addition, we can service our customer base quicker and provide more cost effective transportation.”

The project was made possible in part by a performance-based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $100,000. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance through local governments to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state.
