SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — International auto parts company Gestamp has cut the ribbon for its new plant in South Charleston.
A dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the plant Monday.
The plant is located at the former South Charleston Stamping and Manufacturing Plant. Gestamp is an international company based in Spain.
U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller says in a statement that he's worked with each company that has operated the plant over the years, and there have been many ups and downs. But officials continue fighting to keep the plant in the Kanawha Valley.
