Precision Converting Solutions (PCS) LLC announced plans today to open a specialty converting factory in the Charleston area. The new facility will create 25 high-technology jobs and represent an investment of approximately $6 million. The project was announced by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin during a press conference at the Capitol this morning.
PCS is a subsidiary of Siam Precision Components, a Thailand-based manufacturer of precision laminated components. PCS aims to begin operations in January 2012 in a temporary employee training and business development center. It will be the company’s home until a new 20,000 square-foot clean room and manufacturing facility is built in Kanawha County.
The new facility is Siam’s first manufacturing and research and development facility in North America. PCS plans to begin the hiring process in the fourth quarter of 2011 for key management and technical personnel. Applications are being accepted through Workforce West Virginia.
The Charleston Area Alliance staff and its board members are pleased to have assisted Siam with its location election. We are thrilled with the company’s decision to invest in the Kanawha Valley.
