The article informs that Pennsylvania-based Welex Inc. is moving to a new factory in North Carolina. It will start functioning in February 2007. The company was founded in 1967. According to Frank Nissel, president of the company, because of the layout, the firm still is not able to set up complete extrusion lines. He said the reason for the move was that the building is no longer efficiently suitable for what they want to do. In a bigger building, they will almost double their capacity.
