WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Wichita Falls city leaders are helping a skilled worker start their own manufacturing company that could create 50 jobs by the end of 2019.

On Tuesday, city council awarded $175,000 to Michael Thompson to start Nexstar Manufacturing at the old Lone Star Facility on Mississippi.

It's not the first time Thompson has opened a manufacturing business in Wichita Falls.

He started Arrow Manufactured Products, a company that's already outgrown its first facility.
