In July, Schletter announced it was moving its U.S. headquarters to an East Coast city that, at the time, had yet to be disclosed.
The company plans to create 305 jobs in North Carolina by the end of 2016, and invest more than $27 million in its Cleveland County facility. The project was made possible in part by state grants from the Job Development Investment Grant and the One North Carolina Fund, Perdue's office notes.
The new facility will serve as the production and distribution hub of Schletter's East Coast operations and house all functions required to produce the company's eight types of solar mounting systems. In addition to the manufacturing operations, the Shelby location will become Schletter's U.S. headquarters.
