Hundreds Of New Jobs Headed To Eastern Carolina

An Eastern Carolina county with one of the highest unemployment rates in the state is going to get a well needed boost in jobs.

The Glenoit Fabrics facility in Tarboro is going to be the new home of Jade Apparel. The New Jersey company is expanding.

Local officials say Jade is teaming up with Glenoit to use its facilities and will invest about 2-million dollars and create about 250 new jobs in the next 3-years. One-hundred of those positions could be added in the next 24-months.

At the Glenoit plant, Jade will focus on manufacturing apparel for the military.
