$50,000 Grant Helps BSI-Balance Systems Expand in N.C.
North Carolina's Governor Mike Easley has announced that BSI-Balance Systems, manufacturer of window balance systems, will expand in Statesville, N.C., to create 50 new jobs and an investment of $1.2 million over the next three years. The announcement was made possible in part by a $50,000 One North Carolina Fund grant.
The One North Carolina Fund assists the state in industry recruitment and expansion by providing financial assistance through local governments to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state.
"BSI-Balance Systems' decision to expand in North Carolina is a testament to our business-friendly climate and skilled workforce," Easley said. "We will continue to make smart investments in education, infrastructure and workforce development to ensure manufacturing companies will continue to grow and succeed in our state."
The company currently employs 235 people at two plants in Statesville. After the expansion, both current and new positions will be located in one new manufacturing facility in Statesville. The company also maintains manufacturing facilities in South Dakota and Nevada.
"Over the past eight years, our Statesville facility has proven that quality and service are the driving forces of any successful company," said Eddie Kistler, operations manager of BSI-Balance Systems. "Due to our history of success with the East Coast customers we service in Statesville, we have increased our sales and have been able to expand into a new, larger and more accessible facility."
