ASHEBORO — Up to $656,498 in incentives has been approved to try and bring another company to Randolph County.


Randolph County commissioners agreed to contribute up to $440,613 from the county to join with up to $215,885 from the City of Archdale to offer Project Superman for building a manufacturing and distribution facility in Archdale.


Randolph County commissioners and Archdale city council members voted on the incentives package during a joint meeting on Feb. 6.


Crystal Gettys with the Randolph County Economic Development Corporation presented the proposal. She said the company’s name is still confidential. The site being offered is 35 acres off of Eden Terrace, across from Thomas Built Buses.


Gettys said Project Superman is a packaging products manufacturer based in Ohio with facilities already in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It is considering another state in the southeast.


Gettys said that if the company builds in Archdale, it will create 129 new jobs with an average wage of $45,969 and invest $36 million in property, machinery and equipment over a five-year period.


Project Superman also qualifies for more than $1.7 million from the One North Carolina Fund and other incentives from the state.
