Local Manufacturing Company Encourages Other Businesses to Come to Charlotte

Posted: Updated:
Mooresville, NC - This is an electronic assembly line in Mooresville - operated mostly by a computer. Its a local manufacturing company that makes electronic circuit boards. Brad Tomlin has been working at General Microcircuits for 25 years, and this company is his life.

Tomlin and coworkers like Darlene Turner have worked in textile manufacturing before. But making electronics is a whole different story.  GMI's CEO Dave Dalton has seen the textile industry fade away in North Carolina. And now, he wants to boost the manufacturing business here-by encouraging other companies to plant roots near Charlotte.

Dalton and Mayor Patrick Cannon just got back from a trip to Washington D.C.- that's where they reached out to the Obama administration to find out what needs to be done to make our region a manufacturing hub.
