The Spanish manufacturing company Briolf is set to open its first U.S. facility in Union County, bringing a $30.5 million investment and creating 100 new jobs. Governor Roy Cooper announced the move, emphasizing North Carolina’s appeal to international businesses. The new plant will be part of Briolf’s main subsidiary, Roberlo, which specializes in automotive refinishing and industrial coatings.

The Monroe facility will serve as a manufacturing hub for Briolf Group companies, enhancing their ability to serve North American customers. Construction at the Monroe Corporate Center is slated to begin in 2025, with operations expected to start in 2026. The project is supported by a $150,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund, matched by local government contributions. Briolf’s expansion is anticipated to generate an annual payroll impact of over $5 million, further boosting the local economy.
