Pella Corporation will create 124 jobs at its new window and door manufacturing facility in Rockingham County, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said in a May 7 statement. The company will invest nearly $20 million in the new operation and hiring will begin in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Founded in 1925, Pella is a family-owned company known for designing and building innovative window and door products. The company is headquartered in Pella, Iowa, and employs more than 7,000 people.
“We are known for our core values including total integrity in everything we do, teamwork and respect, and giving back to our communities. After an extensive site selection process, we are confident that the community not only has a quality workforce but is also well aligned with these values and will help us continue to live up to our reputation as a great place to work.” said Pella Corp. CEO Tim Yaggi.
The North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of N.C. (EDPNC) led the state’s support for the company’s expansion.
Pella will create a variety of positions in Rockingham County, and the average salaries will be $41,648, above the county average of $35,401.
Pella’s expansion in Rockingham County will be facilitated, in part, by a Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee earlier today.
Partnering with N.C. Commerce and the EDPNC on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, Piedmont Triad Regional Workforce Development Board, Rockingham County Schools, Rockingham County, and the City of Reidsville.
