October 5, 2016

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A California industrial technology company says it will make Lincoln its manufacturing headquarters.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/2dFyvL5 ) that Monolith Materials, which has its corporate headquarters in Redwood City, California, made the announcement Wednesday.

Monolith says it plans to hire 50 people, including engineers, project managers, plant operators and materials handlers, for its Lincoln location over the next 18 months.

The announcement coincides with Monolith’s partnership with Nebraska Public Power District to build a $50 million plant next door to Sheldon Station near Hallam that will produce carbon black, a powder used in tires, plastic, inks and cellphones.

Monolith says it will begin construction on the new plant later this month.
