Welcome, Edelmann Technology

Another solid German company is locating its North American headquarters here, and that is certainly good news for everyone. Edelmann Technology LP announced Wednesday that its operations will be based in Rocky Mount (on West Church Street) and will begin work by the end of February. The company manufactures and services equipment used in the production of items, such as wipes and absorbent products. Those types of items are manufactured here by another German based company, McAirlaid's, which is located in the Franklin County Commerce Center off U.S. 220 South.

Five to 10 new employees will be hired initially, with that number expected to expand as the company's production grows. Software specialists, electricians and industrial equipment maintenance staff will be part of that initial hire.

Humane society offering valuable service at a very low cost

All pet owners should consider getting their pets spayed or neutered. We all know this would help prevent the proliferation of unwanted pets, which often end up homeless, foraging in the wild or ending up in the animal shelter.

Many feral cats can often be seen at garbage disposal sites, and it's always sad to see.

Spring is right around the corner, and the Franklin County Humane Society is offering a very inexpensive service to help prevent "kitten season." That reference is to the increase in the number of kittens taken to animal shelters in the spring during breeding season.
