Gov. Bev Perdue has announced that FCC (North Carolina), LLC, a manufacturer of automotive components, will expand its operations in Scotland County. The company plans to create 66 jobs and invest more than $57 million over the next three years in Laurinburg. The project was made possible in part by a $264,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. FCC (North Carolina) is owned by FCC (North America), Inc. The parent company is in Japan. FCC (North Carolina) manufactures ATV and automotive components. Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual payroll for the new jobs will be more than $1.8 million, plus benefits. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects and create new jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds. These grants also require local matches. According to Gov. Perdue’s office, through use of the One NC Fund, more than 60,000 jobs and $11 billion in investment have been created since 2001.
