Finishing company to create 50 jobs

TSG, a diverse commission products finisher, is consolidating its Pennsylvania-based operations into its existing North Carolina facilities in Long View, Hickory and Conover. Company officials expect the consolidation to create at least 50 jobs in the Greater Hickory Metro and provide an economic boost of at least $1.5 million through employment and equipment.

"This consolidation is exciting, and it's going to allow us to be more diversified and strengthen our teams down here," said Brian Rosenstein, TSG's chief coordinating officer. "This transition is a sign of our commitment to keeping the business open. We're going to take a 111-year-old tradition and continue to grow."
