New Nash County Plant To Create 212 Jobs

A landscaping supply company plans to create 212 jobs in the next three years as it opens a manufacturing and distribution plant in Nash County.

Governor Easley made the announcement yesterday about Hanes
Geo-Components, a subsidiary of Winston-Salem-based Hanes

It plans to build a 200-thousand square-foot operation in
Middlesex. The company makes grass seed, fertilizer, pesticides and
other erosion control equipment.

Average wages for the new jobs will be 642 dollars per week,
which is higher than average for the county.

The company also received 212-thousand dollars from the One
North Carolina Fund, a taxpayer-funded incentives grant program.
