An Italian-based international company that produces nut-based spreads is going to open a manufacturing operation in the Whitakers Industrial Park.
Nutkao USA, Inc. plans to create 56 new jobs and invest more than $7.3 million over the next three years in the Rocky Mount area, a press release from Gov. Pat McCrory’s office states.
The company is locating in a 100,000-square-foot shell building that was constructed by Nash County in the hopes of landing a manufacturer.
“Nutkao’s decision to locate its manufacturing plant in Nash County is yet another example of how North Carolina is on the radar of international companies,” said Gov. Pat McCrory in a prepared statement. “Our talented workforce and business friendly climate is catching the eye of manufacturers both here in the U.S. and abroad.”
