WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A New York-based business is establishing an 80,000-square-foot distribution center at the Cape Fear Industrial Complex in Rocky Point.
Fine Fixtures Inc., a supplier of bathroom furnishings, plans to employ 20 people.
The company began moving into the complex in early November and plans to start shipments from the center as early as later this month.
Proximity to the Port of Wilmington played a role in deciding the location for the center, according to officials.
“As the capabilities at our Port of Wilmington continue to grow, the at-port model becomes even more attractive to companies focused on logistics and distribution,” said Paul J. Cozza, executive director of the North Carolina State Ports Authority. “Global access is key for Fine Fixtures and many other projects that continue to consider locations in the Cape Fear Region. This investment complements our growth and showcases the port’s ability to service prime importers.”
