ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — A food service manufacturer is slated to bring about 100 jobs to Alamance County over the next three years.
Governor Pat McCrory and Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker announced Thursday that Cambro Manufacturing Company will move their manufacturing operations to Alamance County.
Along with the addition of jobs, the company plans to invest more than $30.4 million over the next three years in Mebane.
The Cambro Manufacturing Company has been in business since 1951 and offers a wide range of trays, table service and display items, storage, shelving, merchandising and insulated transport products.
“North Carolina has a strong legacy in manufacturing,” said Governor McCrory. “Our talented and knowledgeable workforce is a top reason companies choose to locate in North Carolina. Cambro Manufacturing’s announcement brings well-paying manufacturing jobs to Alamance County.”
Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual wage for the new jobs will be $44,200 plus benefits. The Alamance County average annual wage is $35,789.
“Alamance County and the city of Mebane are an ideal location to expand our capacity. The high quality workforce, the ideal transportation location and the business-friendly nature of Mebane, Alamance County and the state of North Carolina make this an ideal fit for Cambro Manufacturing,” said Argyle Campbell, president and owner of Cambro.
The project was made possible in part by a performance-based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $250,000.
