Charleston Stamping and Manufacturing Seeking Employees

Charleston Stamping and Manufacturing is taking applications this week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the South Charleston Recreation Center.

In May Gov. Manchin and Ray Park, owner of the stamping plant, announced a plan to invest $35 million to restart operations around the first of the year.

Park said at the announcement that the addition of new automation equipment is expected to allow the plant to create 79 jobs in its first year, 140 jobs in its second year and as many as 550 jobs in its fourth or fifth year.

The Cleveland financier is investing $20 million. Manchin has committed $15 million in state money.
