CHARLESTON - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today announced Thursday plans to build a new plant in Jackson County, investing millions of dollars in the site and creating at least 60 jobs.
Tomblin held a press conference at the state capitol announcing the plans of Carbonyx, Inc., a Texas-based company, to invest tens of millions of dollars in a new plant in Millwood, W.Va.
The new plant will use state-of-the-art technology to produce a key ingredient for steelmaking and rely on coal as the main input for its manufacturing process, making it an important new customer for regional coal producers.
