Manufacturing jobs in America continue to see growth, with more than 600 planned jobs to be added in locations including North Carolina and Chicago.

North Carolina's Montgomery County will see 505 jobs added to its community from Aseptia Inc., a fruits and vegetables processor located in the city of Raleigh, according to the Triangle Business Journal.

Average annual wages for the 505 jobs are estimated to be $29,678 per employee with benefits, while the company plans to invest $53 million in an expansion of its Montgomery County manufacturing facility. It was originally built about a year ago, according to the news source, initially creating 75 jobs in the area while costing the company $10 million.

An additional 100 manufacturing jobs will be coming to Chicago's South Side, according to Chicago's public media station WBEZ. Eco-friendly cleaning company Method will be expanding to the area, with its upcoming facility expected to open by early 2015.

The new jobs will be a relief to the city's Pullman neighborhood, which currently experiences high unemployment. Method's new facility is part of a larger building project in the area that will bring 1,700 total jobs to the city.
