This week the Mills River Town Council approved adding to an incentives package for a proposed Linamar Plant.   According to a report in the Hendersonville Times News Linamar  is interested in purchasing property between Sierra Nevada Brewery and the Asheville Regional Airport. Linamar is a multi-billion dollar manufacturing company with 48 facilities around the globe including one in  Buncombe County. The President of the Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development Andrew Tate told David Hurand Linamar is also considering a site in Columbia, South Carolina.  Tate says it's a competitive process and a decision on where the plant will be located is still weeks away.
