Building products maker to expand in Kinston
Posted August 24, 2015
Kinston, N.C. — A company that manufactures products for the construction industry plans to expand its Kinston operation, adding 72 jobs over the next three years, officials said Monday.
Associated Materials LLC will invest $4.5 million in the plant, which makes vinyl windows, vinyl siding, vinyl railing and fencing, aluminum trim coil, aluminum and steel siding and related accessories under the Alpine Windows, Alside, Gentek, Ultraguard, Preservation and Revere brands.
The Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio-based company also has offices in Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Raleigh and Wilmington.
The average salary of the new jobs will be $32,222 per year plus benefits, slightly more than Lenoir County’s average annual wage of $32,164.
Associated Materials qualified for a grant of up to $200,000 from the One North Carolina Fund, which provides financial assistance to attract business projects to the state. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job and investment targets to obtain the grant funds, which are matched by local governments.
