Kleen Tech Inc. will build a new process facility in Valdese to accommodate business growth.
The company plans to create 30 jobs and invest $1.17 million during the next three years. The project was made possible in part by a $54,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
Kleen Tech provides textile-cleaning services to hospitality and industrial clients along the East Coast, from Maine to Florida. It does not use solvents typically applied to linens and other fabrics. Kleen Tech’s corporate offices and plant, with 75 employees in nearby Hildebran, will continue to operate but the site there could not accommodate the company’s expansion needs. The expansion will take place at the site of Valdese’s former water treatment plant, which the company plans to “recycle” and refurbish, according to company and local officials.
Kleen Tech will work with the Burke County Employment Security Commission and the Burke County Job Link Career Center for employee needs for the new operation.
