Eldor Corp

Italian auto parts manufacturer Pasquale Forte, said Botetourt County is a long way from Italy and Austria, but,its natural beauty, he says, is one of the reasons his company, Eldor Corp., decided to spend $75 million on a production plant in the Greenfield industrial park. Just two weeks after the announcement that Eldor would be building its first North American manufacturing plant, bulldozers have arrived at Greenfield to begin grading the 53-acre site. Construction is expected to be completed by next summer, company officials say.
The plant will be 250,000 square feet, about the size of the Lawrence Transportation building, which will be its nearest neighbor in the Greenfield complex. The average salary will be 38 grand a year.
