Leviton Manufacturing Company, Inc., a manufacturer of electrical wiring, lighting control, power cables and other electrical products, also plans to make a capital investment of $7.3 million in Morganton.
"The business climate is North Carolina is thriving and Leviton knows this is the right place to expand their operations," Perdue said. "This is proof that our investments in education and infrastructure are paying off and resulting in good jobs for North Carolinians."
