Google expanding into N.C.

It will create up to 210 jobs when it opens 'server farm' in Lenoir


Search-engine giant Google Inc. will expand its high-tech infrastructure into Lenoir, creating up to 210 jobs and investing as much as $600 million, state and company officials said yesterday.

The "server farm" in Caldwell County will start with one center that could expand over the next four years, officials said. The jobs will help revive a strained economy suffering the effects of the loss of thousands of jobs in the furniture and textile industries in recent years.
