A nutrition and skin care company has selected Winston-Salem as the site for its new east coast manufacturing plant. Herbalife will bring nearly 500 new jobs to the city.
The California based company chose a Winston-Salem plant that was previously occupied by Dell. The computer maker couldn't meet certain job thresholds and later returned all of the economic incentives it received from the City and County. Herbalife is purchasing the facility from Dell for $22 million, less than half of the property's value. Mayor Allen Joines.
