County Commissioners Ok Support For Class A Industrial Space

Date Published:

Johnston County Commissioners have unanimously approved a series of economic development incentives to support creation of a 264,000-sq.-ft. industrial building in Smithfield. The County will partner with a private development company in hopes of attracting an advanced manufacturer or life sciences operation to the high-quality speculative space.

“In today’s fast-moving economy, employers want industrial space equipped with modern amenities and ready for occupancy,” said R.S. “Butch” Lawter, Jr., chairman of the Johnston County Board of Commissioners. “This performance-based package of incentive grants will help facilitate the kind of real estate product Johnston County needs in order to stay competitive and continue generating high-wage jobs. We’re grateful for the creativity and hard work of our staff in ensuring our communities can continue embracing exciting economic opportunities when they come our way.”
