Polyhose, an industrial hose manufacturer, is headed to the Pender-New Hanover County line. The company is expected to bring 51 jobs and invest nearly $8 million into the Cape Fear region as the company locates a 40,000-square-foot warehouse and assembly plant at the park.
“Pender County is ready to grow, and international companies like Polyhose know North Carolina’s strong workforce is the right way to put their strategy to work,” said Governor Cooper.
Polyhose, which was formed in 1996 and headquartered in India, focuses on the design, development, manufacturing, and distribution of various types of industrial hoses. The company employs 1,800 workers in their operations in Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and North America.
Company officials say they have been looking at possible locations to expand for a year and a half and are excited about the infrastructure and workforce available in the Cape Fear region.
“Polyhose is thrilled to be making its first significant USA investment in Pender County, North Carolina,” said Jonathan Pressler, Senior Vice President of Polyhose Inc. “Polyhose looks forward to being an involved employer and positive contributor to the Pender County and North Carolina communities.”
