Hello, I need some help with a networking situation.

I need to extend a wireless network in my friendís small machine shop, and for that, I will use a second router as an access point. I have done this in homes, but never in a machine shop. The new router will be located in the opposite side of the shop, 100 ft. away from the main router. I am just undecided about what cable to use. Due a possible EMI interference from the machines (drills, welding machine, punch press, etc.) I believe I should use STP cable, but my only concern is if I will need to ground that cable. This is new for me, and I wonder if I just can use UTP cable instead.
I will not use bulk cable, just a 100ft stranded cable

What would you suggest?

My System

As mentioned by GentleArrow, STP should be fine.

IMO, you can also go with Fiber, Multimode since the distance is not that long. Then you can get media converters, fiber-to-copper, and connect to the AP.

You can find some inexpensive media converters online.
