South Korean metals company opens first U.S. operation in North Carolina


The South Korean metal fabrication company Heung II Industrial Co. Ltd. will open its first U.S. manufacturing operation on the site of a customer’s plant in the The United States. The company will spend $2.3 million and create 30 jobs inside the 440,000-square-foot plant owned by Doosan Infracore Portable Power in Statesville, North Carolina..
“Because of Doosan’s existing relationship with Heung II’s parent company, we were able to successfully recruit a manufacturer that might not otherwise have been on our radar,” says Michael Smith, executive director of Statesville Regional Development.
