WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Officials with Castle Branch announced Friday afternoon the business will create 420 additional jobs.
The company also said it will invest $10.2 million in New Hanover County to expand it's current facility.
The CEO of the company said they hope to break ground on the new facility, which will be near the current building, in a few months. They expect construction to take a little over a year.
In February, New Hanover County Commissioners and Wilmington City Council approved an incentive grant for Castle Branch to expand its current location into their world headquarters.
Castle Branch, which is located near Mayfaire Town Center, does employee background checks and recently grew into screening those in the health care industry.
Terms of the grant said Castle Branch will be paid over a five year period.
