WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Castle Branch, a nationwide employment screening company, announced Tuesday the expansion of its Wilmington headquarters is nearly complete. 

The new 60,000 square-foot location was necessary to accommodate the 420 employees that Castle Branch is required to have by 2017 based on state and local incentives the company received to expand in Wilmington.

"We are counting the days until we are up and running in the new location," says Brett Martin, Chief Executive Officer and founder of Castle Branch, Inc. "We have maxed out our capacity in our current building and will continue to hire in anticipation of the additional space in the new facility."

The new building is expected to be open by early May, a month ahead of schedule. The new facility plus the current 36,000 square-foot location make Castle Branch one of the largest corporate headquarters in New Hanover County. 

The company employs approximately 300 area residents.
