ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- One local business celebrated its expansion on Wednesday.

AvL Technologies had a ribbon cutting for its new 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility.

AvL Technologies specializes in the design, development and production of mobile satellite antennas and positioner systems.

The multi-tenant building is now open for business. It already houses several local tech companies and plans to add an additional 150 jobs to the facility.

"We're trying to bring high-tech jobs to Western North Carolina, good sustainable jobs for coming years," Bryan Kerns, of AVL Technologies, said.

Buncombe County's Board of Commissioners, the Industrial Facilities and Pollution Control Financing Authority and the EDC helped with the expansion.
