WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington-based Castle Branch Inc., says it plans to add more than 50 new jobs over the next year.
Castle Branch is the 10th largest privately held employment screening company in the country. It moved into a 32,000 square foot building near Mayfaire Towncenter in 2009. Since then, the company says it has added 100 jobs, and with the expansion, plans to add 50 more over the next year, bringing the employee count up to 300.
"Castle Branch has been fortunate to find continued growth in this economy," Castle Branch CEO and founder Brett Martin said in a statement. "We are proud to be a constant source for employment in this community and look forward to expanding as one of the largest privately held employment screening companies in the country."
Castle Branch also recently opened a satellite office in Petaluma, CA, with a focus on West Coast sales. California offers a large growth opportunity for Castle Branch, which is projecting to add 15 employees to the Petaluma office within the next 18 months.
