MATTOON (JG-TC) - Thirty jobs will be added to the Mattoon GE Lamp Plant with the company's agreement to supply energy-efficient light bulbs to Walmart stores, the company announced Thursday.

GE is investing $30 million in the project and adding a total of 150 jobs at two plants in Ohio and the Mattoon facility, located at 1501 S. 19th St., the announcement said.

It said the Mattoon plant currently employs 205 workers and the project is a result of increased consumer demand for energy-efficient light bulbs.

More details about the project will be posted when they're available.
