MONCKS CORNER, S.C. -- Atlantic Building Components & Services Inc., a manufacturer of wood trusses and building components for the construction industry, will locate a new manufacturing facility in North Carolina.
The company will invest $6 million in a facility in the town of Fairmont. The project is expected to create 105 jobs.
Atlantic Building Components, founded in 1984 and headquartered in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, manufacturers precision-made roof and floor trusses for national and large volume regional builders. It currently has two factories in South Carolina and one in North Carolina.
Homebuilders such as Pulte Homes, D.R. Horton, Lennar, and Dan Ryan Homes are among Atlantic Building Component’s largest customers. To meet growing market demand, the company said the project in Robeson County, N.C., will significantly expand the company’s production capacity, establishing two roof truss production lines and two-floor truss lines in phase one, along with additional support and materials storage areas.
“We are extremely excited to open our newest manufacturing facility in the Town of Fairmont,” said Jimmy Broach, President & CEO. “The minute we visited Fairmont, we knew this was the perfect location for our next facility. We really liked the small-town atmosphere, and its location relative to Raleigh, Wilmington, Myrtle Beach, and Charlotte made it ideal. We look forward to being a part of the community.”
Atlantic Building Components’ project in North Carolina will be facilitated, in part, by a Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee earlier today. Over the 12-year term of this grant, the project is estimated to grow the state’s economy by nearly $221 million. Using a formula that takes into account the new tax revenues generated by the new jobs, the JDIG agreement authorizes the potential reimbursement to the company of up to $1,045,000, spread over 12 years.
"North Carolina’s rural communities like Robeson County offer many attractive features for modern manufacturers,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “Growing companies like Atlantic Building Components know they will find the skilled workers, training programs, and overall business environment they need when they select our state.”
