A big construction project is catching the eyes of people in Mills River.

Mills River is not a big community, so when they notice a big project, they begin asking questions.

"I was wondering what was being built on School House Road in Mills River right across from Mills River Elementary School?" Amy Watkins wrote to Ask 13.

The Henderson County Permits and Inspections Office said the large building under construction will be a manufacturing plant for Norafin Americas.

The Mills River plant, which will be more than 77,000 square feet, will be the German-based company's first in America. The business is expected to create 45 jobs.

Norafin makes specialty engineered fabrics for all types of uses. Norafin plans to begin hiring in September, with the plant expected to be up and running by April.
