The Marco Company Expands Operations To Create 100 Jobs in rural northeast, North Carolina
"My first priority is creating jobs," said Gov. Bev Perdue. "Our skilled workforce and strong business climate continue to be attractive to manufacturers like The Marco Company."
"Due in large part to the diligent efforts of the various N.C. Economic Development organizations, including Gov. Perdue's office and our experience with other operations here in the state, we at The Marco Company are very excited to be expanding operations to the Martin County area," said Darin Dougherty, Operations Manager at The Marco Company. "When we started our search for an expansion location, we decided that we wanted to find a community that would be receptive to industry and had a solid workforce base. With all of the hard work and great communication with the Martin County officials, we feel we have found a great community to call home."
The company said salaries will vary by job function, but the total payroll for the new jobs will be nearly $2.5 million.
Marco's $190,000 investment in expanding in the rural northeast part of the state, was made possible in part by a $200,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds. These grants also require and are contingent upon local matches.
