Maker of mobile home windows brings 125 jobs to SC

CHESTER, S.C. (AP) - A company that makes windows for mobile homes and recreation vehicles is brining a plant to South Carolina.

Officials told The Herald of Rock Hill that Kinro's new plant in Chester County should bring 125 jobs to the county which has the third-worst unemployment rate in the state at 21.3 percent.

Kinro will take over the former Philips Products plant. The two companies are competitors, and county officials say they immediately began wooing Kinro when Philips Products closed down a year ago.

Kinro is based in Arlington, Texas, and is a subsidiary of Drew Industries.
