A manufacturer of electrical components plans to add 29 jobs at its plant in Goldsboro over the next three years.
Balfour Beatty Rail currently employs 50 workers in Goldsboro, where it makes components used in public transit, including light rail and streetcars.
The $1 million expansion "anticipates a growing demand for mass transit construction opportunities around the U.S., including systems such as the Charlotte Light Rail System and the recently awarded Charlotte Street Car System," Joe Reed, vice president of transit, said in a statement.
The governor's office announced that Balfour Beatty could receive up to $60,000 in state incentives if it meets job and investment targets.
The new jobs will pay an average of $43,000 a year, well above the average annual wage of $31,512 in Wayne County, according to the governor's office.
