New COTY plant starts to add tenants

Posted: Updated:

ROCKY POINT, NC (WECT) - When the old COTY plant in Pender County closed in May 2011, hundreds of people lost their jobs. Now, the new owner says that he plans to divide the plant up and then lease out sections.

A very small section has already been leased out to an electric contractor.  The entire plant has about 450,000 square feet and the leased portion only makes up 30,000 square feet.

While the company only offers about a dozen jobs, building owner David Barnes says he's working to bring in other companies that will bring more employment opportunities.
