Associated Materials Inc. is investing $5 million into its Alside Window Co. plant in Kinston, N.C., and will hire 252 employees over the next five years.

The Cuyahoga, Ohio-based parent corporation makes exterior building products. The Kinston plant is one of seven Alside facilities in the United States.

“We are investing in people, training, new equipment, and manufacturing capabilities now through the next five years,” Ondrea Joyner, senior human resources manager for AMI, said in a statement.

N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory and Sharon Decker, the state’s commerce director, announced the expansion on Aug. 29, saying the creation of manufacturing jobs is a priority in the governor’s economic plan.

Founded in 1947, Alside makes vinyl siding and accessories, vinyl windows and patio doors, and fencing and railing products for the residential and commercial remodeling and new construction markets.

The window plant in Kinston is one of the community’s largest employers. The company has 540 workers in North Carolina and will add 252 more in upcoming years.

Alside sells products to licensed professional remodeling contractors and home builders through 100 company supply centers and select independent distributors.
