N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory and N.C. Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker announced today that RC Creations, LLC, a seafood processing company, will establish a new facility in Pender County. The company plans to create 120 new jobs and invest more than USD 25 million (EUR 18.3 million) by the end of 2017.
The Currie production facility will import fresh and frozen seafood from around the world to create ready-to-eat seafood products that are packaged and shipped domestically and internationally. The facility will utilize state of the art technologies to continue to meet and exceed current Global Food Safety Initiatives (GFSI) & Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements.
“Our location on the eastern seaboard and top-notch workforce make North Carolina the perfect place for RC Creations to process and deliver seafood products to markets around the world,” McCrory said. “This project demonstrates how investments in customized training programs at community colleges and critical infrastructure can spur job creation.”
