MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A fiberglass insulation manufacturer in Berkeley County will open a second production line and create 100 new jobs, Gov. Bob Wise and officials with the company said Monday night.

Guardian Industries Corp., along Interstate 81 at the Tablers Station Road exit, will invest between $15 million and $20 million in its plant to open the second production line, according to a press release from Wise's office.

Final decisions on the size of the new line and its completion date will be made later this year, Wise said.

Guardian Fiberglass is a worldwide manufacturer of fabricated glass products for the commercial and residential construction industries. The company is also the world's largest producer of mirrors.
