(RALEIGH) -- A Norwegian furniture manufacturer plan to open a new facility in Burke County.  Ekornes ASA will create 58 jobs and invest $1.3 million over the next three years in Morganton.

Gov. Beverly Perdue said the project was made possible in part by a $100,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. “North Carolina continues its long and celebrated history in the furniture industry,” said Gov. Bev Perdue. “Ekornes is making a commitment to North Carolina, not just because we are the furniture capital of the world, but because our investments in education have built an experienced, highly-skilled workforce, excellent training programs and a top-ranked business climate.”

Ekornes must meet specific job creation and investment goals to receive the incentives.
