Moses Lake’s SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers, which makes the materials used in BMW’s electric cars, will expand production. The firm plans to add two new productions lines at a cost of $100 million.
“The SGL project aligns perfectly with Washington economic development comprehensive plan,” says Brian Bonlender. “It is an ideal example of the cutting-edge industries that we must compete for in order to secure our state’s long-term prosperity in the global innovation economy.” Bonlender is Director of the Washington State Department of Commerce, a WCTA Gold Member.
