Pactiv to expand in Kinston and Mooresville

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday governor Pat McCrory announced that the Pactiv company will expand manufacturing facilities in our state.

The expansion in Lenoir and Iredell counties will create 77 jobs and invest more than $9 million in Kinston and Mooresville.

Pactiv makes food packaging. They currently employ over 850 people in North Carolina.

"Manufacturers like Pactiv recognize that our state's workforce is second to none," said Governor McCrory. "We must continue to support education and job training programs that will help companies produce more goods with the 'Made in North Carolina' logo."

The Governor's office tells 9 On Your Side that salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual payroll for the new jobs in Kinston and Mooresville will be in excess of $2.5 million.

"I am proud that Pactiv has chosen to expand in Lenoir County," said Rep. John Bell. "This is a significant step in our efforts to bring manufacturing jobs back to Eastern North Carolina and improve the state's economy."
