Broken Arrow company to open plant in North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A Broken Arrow manufacturer plans to open a new manufacturing plant in North Carolina with 25 workers.

North Carolina Governor Mike Easley announced Wednesday that Paragon Films will be opening a manufacturing plant in Taylorsville and investing $10-million there.

Production at the plant will begin by the end of October.

Paragon president Mike Baab says the company chose the location because of grants the state of North Carolina offered.

The company received a $125,000 from the state Commerce Department's industrial development fund. The fund is designed to assist municipal or county governments with financing for eligible industries.

The company also received a rail access grant from the state Transportation Department.

Paragon makes stretch film products used in shipping.
