EDEN, N.C. — Loparex, a global manufacturer of polycoated and silicone-coated papers and films, is planning to expand its manufacturing operations in Eden, according to The Triad Business Journal.

Rockingham County officials said the expansion will come with a dozen jobs at a former Liberty Textiles building on Fieldcrest Road.

The new positions would reportedly come on top of 68 jobs that Loparex announced it would add in 2009 as part of a $16.9 million expansion in the city.

Loparex now has a total work force of 143 people in Eden, according to Graham Pervier, president of the Rockingham County Partnership.
