THOMASVILLE, N.C. — City and county governments here are considering a $28,000 incentive package to help a South Carolina company open an upholstery frame factory here, according to the Lexington (N.C.) Dispatch.
According to the paper, Shelton Hinson of Carolina Frame Builders said the company is interested in a vacant location used by another frame builder that left the facility three years ago. Hinson said the company is interested in the Thomasville location because of the proximity to customers, a skilled workforce and a facility that doesn't require much upfit.
Carolina Frame's investment would be about $750,000 and the company would employ about 20 people, the Dispatch said. Hinson said he hoped production could begin in 30 to 45 days.
The company, based in Spartanburg, S.C., also has a lumber drying facility in Mississippi.
