LLFlex will open a manufacturing facility in High Point.

The average wages for jobs at a new manufacturing facility planned for Guilford County could reach $58,000, according to the North Carolina Department of Commerce.

“North Carolina’s educated, motivated workforce, business-friendly landscape and prime geographic location made it the ideal locale for our newest facility, which is a culmination of our commitment to customer service, production excellence and market share growth,” Victor Dixon, CEO of LLFlex, said in a press release.

The packaging and laminate solutions company is investing $7.6 million in the new facility that will be located in High Point and is projected to create 46 jobs. North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said the skills and workforce required to keep business on track is prioritized in North Carolina and will continue to draw companies like LLFlex.

The average salary in the county is just shy of $48,000. Wages at LLFlex will vary based on position but can be expected to reach $58,021. 

The One North Carolina Fund is providing a $90,000 performance-based grant to assist LLFlex. The company had to create a certain number of jobs and meet capital investment goals to qualify for the grant. A matching grant from the local government is also a requirement to receive the money. 

LLFlex has been in business for 90 years and is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. It provides materials and services to the tobacco, wire and cable, and construction industries.
