A wire and cable manufacturer says it plans to open its second plant in Tarboro, bringing 116 new jobs to the region over the next five years.
Gov. Beverly Perdue announced today that Superior Essex Inc. will invest more than $58 million for the new facility, made possible in part by a state grant from the Job Development Investment Grant program.
The company says the expansion will allow them to move into the power cable market. The average pay for the new jobs will be $41,289 a year, not including benefits. That's well above the county's average pay of $33,176.
