RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) - Fifty jobs have been added to Vermont Castings since the stove manufacturer was bought last year.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1mKSEgv) after the purchase, the new owners decided to close a plant in Mexico and return to the United States work that had been outsourced there and to China.

CEO Ricardo Leon said that resulted in 40 additional positions at the company’s assembly plant in Bethel and 10 jobs at its Randolph foundry. That’s where the company started making woodstoves in the 1970s. It also makes barbeque grills and kitchen products.
