El Paso beat North Carolina to be one of the expansion sites.

Minnesota’s Flagstone Foods’ recently picked up a new brand and is spending and hiring big time in El Paso to accommodate it.

Flagstone is spending $28.2 million on the expansion project and will be hiring over 90 new employees. They currently employ 450 people.

On top of that, an El Paso owned company ... Prod Design & Analysis ... is also expanding and hiring.

Their east side factory will see almost $6 million in improvements and they plan to add 48 employees, mostly engineering and tech positions, to their current staff of 120.

Prod wages run from $18 - $25 dollars per hour, jobs will be posted on their website.

That's not all either. According to the El Paso Times, the Sun City is jumping these days thanks to the expansions as well as some pretty generous incentives being offered.

The planned expansions come on the heels of other recently announced El Paso-area factory plans: Ireland's Eaton Corp., is to put a second, 600-worker factory in West El Paso; Taiwan's Hota Industrial Manufacturing is to build a 350-worker auto-parts factory in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, on the outskirts of El Paso's west city limits; and France's Schneider Electric recently opened its fourth West El Paso factory, adding another 400 employees by the end of the year. - EP Times

Flagstone wages start at $16.83 per hour while some positions pay $19.47 per hour. They also offer health insurance and other benefits. Jobs will be posted on Flagstone's website.
