Tech company to bring 397 jobs to Triangle

Posted by on Thu, Sep 24, 2009 at 5:09 PM

Gov. Bev Perdue announced today that a major tech company, EMC Corp., has plans to expand in the Triangle, bringing nearly 400 new, high-paying jobs to Durham and Wake counties - 292 jobs to Durham and 105 to Apex.

The jobs will have an average salary of more than $73,000 per year, not including benefits.

EMC Corp., a Massachusetts-based company specializing in data storage, security and management, could receive as much as $7.4 million during the next nine years through a Job Development Investment Grant from the state Economic Investment Committee. (Read the full details here.) The company already has a presence in Research Triangle Park and 900 employees in our state.

Additionally, the company is asking Durham County for $1.2 million in incentives in exchange for building a data center and research and development operation, said Carolyn Titus, Durham's deputy county manager.

The company would make a $282 million investment in Durham if it located the new facilities in Research Triangle Park, Titus said.

Durham County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the incentives package Oct. 12 at its regular meeting.
