Composite Materials Maker To Open Colorado Plant

DENVER (AP) -- Colorado officials say Denmark-based Bach Composite Industry will open a plant in Fort Lupton to manufacture composite materials for wind turbine builders.

Gov. Bill Ritter said Wednesday the plant will employ 100 to 150 people when it reaches full production.

Ritter's statement says operations are scheduled to begin early next year, but the statement doesn't say when the plant is expected to reach full production.

The operation will be in the former Colorado Railcar Manufacturing plant in Fort Lupton, 25 miles north of Denver.

Colorado Railcar, which made diesel-powered commuter trains, closed in December.
