Congressman Walter Jones Visits Greenville

A company that has grown from four employees to 250 in the last 15 years gets a visit from a congressman Thursday.

Congressman Walter B. Jones is coming to Greenville to visit Metrics, Inc. Thursday afternoon. Phil Hodges and John Bray, PhD., started Metrics in 1994 with four employees. They now have 250 on their payroll at their state of the art facility on the northeast side of Greenville, according to a press release from the Pitt County Development Commission.

"Another impressive note is that during the present economy, they have had zero layoffs," said Wanda Yuhas, Executive Director of the Pitt County Development Commission.

Congressman Jones is scheduled to visit Metrics at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

    A successful home-grown pharmaceutical company located in Pitt County! It's great to hear some positive news from the business front.

    It is a testament to the IQ gap between district 1 and district 3. I haven't always agreed with Jones but hardly if ever with butterball.

    He has a handfull just trying to keep the Marine Corps/Camp Lejeune on an ethically acceptable course. That is a full plate in itself. Hope he is able to keep good, highly capable people on his staff in Washington.

    Mr. Jones does a great job for the 3rd district and the people of NC. I wish I could say the same for Mr. Butterball and the 1st district.
