Edgecombe nears deal to land firm – Rocky Mount Telegram

A so-far undisclosed company is close to finalizing a deal to open a multimillion dollar facility in the Kingsboro Industrial Park, which would mean 800 jobs for the area, according to local officials.

The Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners held a special closed session meeting last week, approving a memorandum of agreement, said Edgecombe County Manager Eric Evans.

“That is a non-binding agreement that spells out the incentives the board shows it’s willing to offer subject to this company making investments in the county and creating jobs,” Evans said. “We now await a final decision from the company. If and when they do, there will be a formal announcement. At that time, a formal agreement, aka an inducement agreement, will come before the board for approval. I can’t share the company name, but it would be 800 jobs and approximately $580 million in investments.” (Rocky Mount Telegram)
