A company that specializes in advanced polymers primarily used for aircraft will relocate its national headquarters and operations to Rutherford County.

On Tuesday, Trelleborg Coated Systems US, Inc. announced its plans to expand its operations to the existing Trelleborg facility located on Railroad Avenue in Ruth.

"I do think this is a very significant project for the county as well as Rutherfordton and Ruth," said Matt Blackwell, Rutherford County Economic Development Commission director. "It will provide a number of jobs for the community with a well-above average wage."

The company plans to create 76 new jobs and invest nearly $11 million over the next four years in the county.
