Rockwell Automation, global provider of industrial automation solutions, has announced that it will expand its plant at Ladysmith for $1.2 million. This expansion will create around 123 new jobs in the region.
The company has allotted Transportation Economic Assistance grant worth $240,000. This amount will be paid for working on Doughty Road, which is the major access road to the region. This amount covers only half of the total amount required for revamping the road. The other half of the required amount will be contributed by the city of Ladysmith.
