ADA, OK - Hundreds of "green" jobs are coming soon to the Ada Industrial Park.
City officials announced today that PEI Worldwide, which manufactures environmentally-friendly insulation used in building construction, is coming to town in early 2012.
PEI plans to employ up to 75 employees next year, growing up to 275 employees in 2015. The company's president says he's a supporter of hiring veterans and plans to employ as many as possible in Ada.
Employees are expected to earn an average hourly wage in excess of $15 an hour and have access to employer health insurance benefits as well.
PEI will move into the old Remington building, which has been vacant since they closed in 2005.
