Industrial contractor AMARK Corp. is expanding in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. The company will invest $1.9 million and create 43 jobs over three years. The One North Carolina Fund is supporting the project with a $126,000 grant.
"AMARK was introduced to the Pasquotank Region by one of its new development partners, Jon Wheeler of Wheeler Interests, which owns the building and was essential in bringing AMARK to the area and coordinating with the various resources available in North Carolina to make the expansion feasible," said company President Colleen Patton. "The management of AMARK is excited about the incentives and the opportunity to move to North Carolina. The Elizabeth City facility is only an hour away from the company's Virginia headquarters and will be beneficial in supporting the needs of its current operations."
AMARK fabricates steel and pipe for uses in general and industrial construction. The facility will be converted into a fabrication shop where workers will cut, weld, and fabricate steel and other metals.
