Beaufort County received a shot of economic vitality Thursday afternoon in the form of a major investment in the area.
Impressions Marketing Group, which makes store displays, will expand its manufacturing facility in Beaufort County. That expansion aims to create 120 new jobs and an investment by the company of over three million dollars over the next three years. The average weekly salary of the new jobs will be over $600.00. Impressions already employs 160 people at its Washington facility.
The expansion is due in part, to a $240,000 grant the company received from the state.
