New, big business has been scouting here in the east and that could mean some job openings.
The Onslow County Board of Commissioners met Monday afternoon to find out a bit more.
The county manager says the company cannot disclose its name until the final decision has been made, but we know Onslow is in the top two choices for location of a defense oriented company that is looking to lease or buy property.
The land and building is off highway 258 in the N-A Burton business park. Officials say the company may bring up to 30 jobs that pay more than a $50,000 salary.
Once the company makes a final location decision a contract could be in front of county commissioners within 48 hours.
