Nomacorc, the wine-cork maker that was considering expanding into Oklahoma, will receive $350,000 in state and local incentives to build its new manufacturing plant near its existing site in Zebulon Industrial Park in Wake County, North Carolina.
The company is planning a $16.5 million expansion, which will include a 60,000-square-foot plant on 6.8 acres. It will create 108 new positions over the next three years, of which 28 have already been filled. The company now has 220 workers.
Earlier this year, Nomacorc, which has been in Zebulon for six years, threatened put those additional jobs in Oklahoma, which had offered it an attractive financial package.
Wow! Can you believe that $350,000, beats Oklahoma's 'attractive financial package' offer or were they bluffing all along?
