Company considering Rowan for 184 jobs, $120 million investment

SALISBURY — An unnamed manufacturing company could create 184 new jobs and make a $120 million investment in Rowan County, one of two locations in the running for a new production facility.
Robert Van Geons, executive director for RowanWorks Economic Development Commission, said he can’t name the company, which he called a respected North American-based manufacturer. The company has narrowed its choice to Rowan and another location in a competing Southern state, Van Geons said.
He is asking Rowan County commissioners to set a public hearing for Oct. 7 to consider the company’s request for free land and other economic incentives.
If the project moves forward as planned, Van Geons said he will be able to name the company by Sept. 27 at the latest, 10 days before the public hearing.
