CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Hunter Douglas says it’s adding 250 jobs at its window blind factory in Cumberland.

A spokeswoman says the plant currently employs about 800 people.

She says the new hires will make it Allegany County’s second-largest employer after the Western Maryland Health System.

Hunter Douglas N.V. is a publicly traded company based in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. It has U.S. headquarters in Pearl River, N.Y.
