— Edgecombe County is about to get a much needed economic boost. An auto parts manufacturer is opening shop in Tarboro.

Carolina System Technology announced plans Wednesday to open its newest plant which will employ 160 people to start. Officials say employment could rise to include as many as 500 people within a couple of years.

The new business will provide a great economical boost for a county that's always near the top of the state's unemployment list.
