ASHEBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Railroad Company will invest $420,000 to assist with the construction of a rail spur serving a proposed hygiene products manufacturing facility in Asheboro.

Fibertex Personal Care recently announced its plans to invest $60 million in the manufacturing site. The company will build a facility at an established industrial site on Pineview Road in Asheboro adjacent to Norfolk Southern's rail line to High Point.

The North Carolina Railroad Co. owns and manages 317-miles of rail that stretches from Charlotte to the Port Terminal in Morehead City. Partners such as Norfolk Southern, CSX Transportation, and other entities manage rail operations along the state-owned corridor.

“The availability of freight rail infrastructure and service plays an important role as business and industry consider expanding or locating in North Carolina,” says Scott Saylor, president of the North Carolina Railroad Co.

A news release issued by the state-owned railroad did not indicate when Fibertex would begin rail shipments or when its facility would be built.
