Ammo maker to create 150 jobs in Robeson County

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

A privately held ammunition manufacturer says it's locating a new manufacturing facility in Robeson County, where it will create 150 jobs and invest more than $15.2 million over the next three years.
    
Gov. Pat McCrory announced Wednesday that Cape Fear Arsenal will locate in Lumberton.
    
Cape Fear Arsenal provides high quality ammunition products in the Southeast U.S. Its products will be primarily sold to law enforcement, and the company anticipates bidding on contracts for the military and state agencies.
    
The project was made possible in part by a performance-based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $490,000.
    
Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual wage for the new jobs will be $41,559, plus benefits. The Robeson County average annual wage is $26,832.
