Area City Council Approves Incentive That Could Result In More Than 200 New Jobs

Statesville City Council voted unanimously Monday (February 20) to offer a cabinet manufacturer from the Midwest a $202,119 economic incentive to build a manufacturing plant in Statesville. Dura Supreme LLC, a custom cabinet maker with facilities in Minnesota and Iowa, is interested in building a manufacturing facility that would create between 115 and 237 jobs in Statesville.

The company’s investment in the proposed Statesville plant is estimated at $17.4 million. The incentives approved by the Statesville Council would be over five years. According to Chad Thomas, vice president of economic development for the Iredell County Economic Development Corporation, the company was founded in Minnesota in 1954 by Don Stotts, who began the company in his garage after serving as a Navy Seabee.

The Iredell County Board of Commissioners was expected to approve additional incentives for Dura Supreme during its meeting Tuesday night (February 21).
