Jobs moving back across the border?

Here's some news you don't hear very often -- a manufacturing company is moving jobs from Mexico to Washington state.

Pyrotek Inc., a company that makes high-end metal and composite products for customers around the world, announced yesterday that they are relocating equipment from their plant in Apodaca, Mexico to start a new production line in the Spokane Valley. The new facility will make high-quality ceramic filters for an industrial customer and will create about 20 skilled manufacturing jobs.

Production is expected to begin in August.
