Expansion project to create additional 17 jobs in Greene County
Building Envelope Erection Services, Inc., fabricator and deliverer of project-specific aluminum framing used in the construction of mid-size commercial buildings, cut the ribbon on their site expansion with the Greene County Board of Commissioners, the North Carolina Global Transpark Economic Development Region, and local leaders and partners on April 5, 2022. In 2021, the NC Rural Infrastructure Authority approved Greene County’s request for $75,000 in funds to support the building reuse of Building Envelope Erection Services, Inc. Snow Hill, NC manufacturing facility.
Building Envelope Erection Services, Inc., is expanding its current operations at their Snow Hill site to facilitate growth projections anticipated by the expanding North Carolina and broader Mid-Atlantic commercial real estate market. This hiring of new positions and creating new jobs is also contributing to the growth of the local Greene County economy. This is an investment to meet the growing demand in the Aluminum framing market, including the increased demand driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. The project brings a capital investment of more than $1.2 million over the next five(5) years to Greene County and is expected to create more than 17 additional jobs at that site.
Will Brown, Sr. Director, Operations at Snow Hill added, “I’m so proud of our Greene County team and the role we play in significantly contributing to the growth of our business and adding jobs and investment to eastern NC. We look forward to being able to support our local community with more job opportunities as a result of this expansion, and are excited that this grant will help support a continued bright future for Greene County.”
Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the EDPNC on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, Greene County, the North Carolina Global TransPark Economic Development Region, and Lenoir Community College.
