Inmar announces 212 new jobs in Winston-Salem
The company is receiving a $237,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund in exchange for its agreement to stay here and create new jobs. Inmar is also eligible for up to $4.2 million in state tax breaks through the Job Development Investment Grant. As part of the incentives package, the Winston-Salem City Council approved up to $1.8 million for the company in February. "We need good news in our community as we make a transition in our economy to knowledge-based industries," Joines said. The city and chamber of commerce plan to work with area colleges and universities to train workers to meet the company's labor needs, Joines and Anderson said. "Our headquarters will remain in Winston-Salem," Mounts said. "I did share and I will say that it it was not an easy decision. We did look at several other communities that were competitive."
