Incentives for DAK?

Here yah go Gov McCrory....

DAK Americas is considering shutting down its plant in Navassa, the company said Wednesday.

A decision will be made "in the very near future," said Ricky Lane, corporate communications manager in Charlotte for the company.

The Brunswick County plant employs 350 full-time employees as well as another 250 contract workers, Lane said.

The plant was built in the late 1960s and DAK bought it from DuPont in 2001, Lane said.

"We have had some growth of that facility, but the facility does have an aging infrastructure, which is a factor," he said.

DAK Americas has informed its employees that closing the plant is an option, Lane said.

DAK's parent company is Alfa S.A.B. de C.V., based in Mexico.

DAK makes three products here, Lane said: PET resin, polyester staple fiber and monomers, which are the raw material for the other two.

Bill Rabon must have had heart failure upon hearing this right after the Gov signed the unemployment bill.
600 jobs between Dak and Mundy maintenance - all high paying.

These poor folks will get less than 20 weeks of unemployment at $350/week.

The city, in conjunction with Brunswick county should "incentivise" them to stay.
Timing, as they say, is everything....
