Nash Building Systems Inc., a manufacturer of metal roofing, metal building components and pre-engineered steel buildings, will invest $2.2 million over the next three years in Tarboro, North Carolina, to expand its facility in Edgecombe County.
“Our business continues to grow even in these tough economic times,” said Brent Nash, Jr., president of Nash Building Systems, Inc. “The strong agricultural community and our product mix has helped fuel that growth. The market for growing businesses is very competitive and the One NC Fund helped North Carolina win out over other states for the new location of this business. We look forward to continued success in Tarboro where we enjoy real business opportunity as well as a community focused on family.”
The project was made possible in part by a performance-based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $100,000. The grant is contingent upon proof of job creation and receipt of a local funding match. “Companies know our state has the highly-skilled workforce needed to compete in a global economy,” said Gov. Pat McCrory. “It’s always encouraging when homegrown companies choose to reinvest here in North Carolina.”
“The N.C. Department of Commerce is committed to working with manufacturers to help them create new jobs and compete in a global economy,” said Sharon Decker, N.C. Secretary of Commerce. “We congratulate Nash Building Systems for investing in North Carolina once again.” The company plans to create 29 jobs.
