The mining company CS Global Group intends to invest USD 10m (EUR 8.5m) to build a manufacturing facility in Moundsville, West Virginia, the company’s first in the U.S, according to a statement from the office of the West Virginia state governor.
The firm will create 47 new full-time jobs at the facility which will be operational by the first quarter of 2022.
The company takes over a site in Moundsville with easy access to rail and barge transport systems.
“Existing buildings, such as silos, will be utilized by the company, which plans to build a new 25,000-square-foot warehouse. Large empty areas at the property will also enable further growth of plant production capacity,” the statement read.
CS Global Group manufactures and sells barium sulfate, which is used in the oil and gas drilling industry and other industrial applications. The company operates in over 60 countries.
