Hosokawa Custom Processing Services, a contract chemical processor, will create 16 new jobs in Wayne County.
The company will invest $6.5 million to relocate a processing center to Goldsboro.
Hosokawa Custom Processing Services is the custom processing division of Hosokawa Micron, which is engaged in process solutions for powder and particle technology. The custom processing business processes powders to be used primarily by the chemical, mineral, and plastic industries.
The new location in Goldsboro will be the new home of the business currently located in New Jersey.
“Hosokawa Micron is pleased to announce the expansion of this part of our business,” states Rob Voorhees, president of Hosokawa Micron International. “After exploring several opportunities in other states, the site in Goldsboro North Carolina offered the best location and building for our expansion needs. We hope to be operational by the fall of 2022 and look forward to operating out of our new business location in Goldsboro.”
