Corvette drives plastics-plant investment, up to 50 jobs

The 2015 Corvette is driving a $6.3 million investment in Huntington that will create up to 50 new jobs by 2015, state officials announced Tuesday.

Continental Structural Plastics Inc. makes exterior body panels and structural composites components for Ford and General Motors.

Continental, which now employs 286 full time in Huntington, will renovate its 203,000-square-foot factory at 1890 Riverfork Drive in Riverfork Industrial Park. Work is scheduled to be completed by spring.

The Michigan-based company will also invest in equipment for a new production line for 2015 Corvette-model body panels.
