Central Carolina Products Inc. has applied for $5.5 million in industrial revenue bonds as it looks to invest $1.5 million to expand its injection molding facility in Burlington to 70,000 square feet.
The current facility is 10,000 square feet and will combine operations from the firm's two other Burlington plants that do assembly, paint and finishing when construction is completed in about six months. The facility that is being expanded had been doing primarily injection molding.
Within one or two years, CCP will discontinue the work at the two other plants, office manager Rachel Baise said. The 25-30 workers who are at those two plants will move into the expanded building. She would not comment on the fate of the two facilities.
CCP, which makes plastic automotive parts, expects to add 60-70 jobs during the next few years. The company, headquartered in Burlington, operates 11 injection molding lines and plans to add four after the expansion, ``though that number could change,'' she said.
Baise said CCP President Carlos Diaz would not comment on the expansion.
