WEIRTON, W.Va. (AP) - An oil and gas control systems company plans to open a manufacturing facility in Weirton.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says the $9 million Pietro Fiorentini USA plant is expected to create up to 41 jobs during the initial phase and up to 150 when fully operational.

The West Virginia plant will be the company's first manufacturing operation in the U.S. It will produce components for the treatment of shale oil and gas.

The company plans to lease space at the former Wheeling Corrugating Plant in Brooke County to get operations under way within six months.

Construction on the new manufacturing facility is expected to start this summer.

The Italy-based parent company Pietro Fiorentini produces pressure regulators, valves, and pressure reducing and metering systems for the natural gas industry.
