NC One Of Five States Considered By South Korean Company

A South Korean company says North Carolina is one of five states it is considering for an electric vehicle manufacturing plant that will create 2,600 jobs over the next five years.

CT&T Company Ltd. says it plans to decide by September among sites in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and California.

Curt Westlake, a spokesman for the company's U.S. branch, said the sites will see full assembly of electric cars within 12 months.

Westlake said CT&T plans to build a North American headquarters, a research and development center and several manufacturing facilities, which could be spread among multiple states or consolidated on one site.

He said CT&T would evaluate sites based on the presence of a skilled work force, the transportation infrastructure and the incentives offered.

    Let us see if the Governor will offer the same tax perk to this company as they did with Apple. Will our Governor play favorites?
