CWW Conveyor Systems LLC plans to add 20 jobs in Carroll County
CWW Conveyor Systems announced Friday plans to add 20 jobs and invest $2 million to expand its operation in Carroll County.
The Hillsville-based company, which supplies conveyor systems for the mining industry, currently has 80 employees. The firm was part of Caterpillar Global Mining America LLC until March, when CWW was created as a new company to serve the United States, Mexico and Canada.
The new jobs are expected to pay an above average wage for the region.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $65,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund for the project. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission approved $85,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds. The Virginia Jobs Investment Program will provide funding and services for employee training.
Virginia competed against Pennsylvania for the project.
