Industrial Equipment Manufacturer Expanding in North Carolina

Dynapar Corporation, a manufacturer and supplier of automated equipment control devices, will invest $1.5 million to expand its plant in Elizabethtown, North Carolina, according to the North Carolina governor's office. The project is expected to create 79 new jobs over the next three years; the governor's office says the average annual salaries will be "significantly higher" than the Bladen County average of $25,272. "The Elizabethtown plant has been a part of the community for over 40 years. It is great to have the support of the state and local government as we expand our operations here," says Ken Verhulst, Dynapar's vice president of operations. The Illinois-headquartered company has been given a $150,000 grant from the state; information about incentives from local entities was not announced.
