DMA Industries Expands Tabor City, North Carolina, Distribution-Warehouse Complex
The investment will include significant modernization to the company’s existing distribution center.
“DMA started its operations in Tabor City 15 years ago with the help of a lot of people at the local, county and state level,” said President and CEO John Treece. “We are a testimony to what can be achieved when people come together and pursue a common goal. We are proud to call Tabor City home and to continue to support a community that continues to support us.”
The project is being supported by a performance-based grant of $70,000 from the One North Carolina Fund. The OneNC Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and to create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All OneNC grants require a matching grant from local governments and any award is contingent upon that condition being met.
“Companies like DMA Industries appreciate North Carolina’s support of our existing business community,” noted Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “To keep our winning edge in economic development, I will continue to focus on building and training our workforce and providing programs that support business expansions in our state.”
DMA Industries is a supplier to North America’s aftermarket for replacement automotive and heavy duty parts. The company’s sales channels include Original Equipment Service parts for car dealerships, big box automotive retailers, traditional wholesale distribution, and e-commerce retail sales.
Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, North Carolina’s Southeast, Columbus County, the Town of Tabor City, the Tabor City Committee of 100, and the Columbus County Economic Development Commission.
