Incentives considered in Stokes

$1.6 million may be granted for expansion of copper company

DANBURY (Winston-Salem Journal) -
Stokes County commissioners are considering $1.6 million in incentives for KobeWieland Copper Products LLC.

KobeWieland announced in May that it would expand its manufacturing plant in Pine Hall, investing $71 million during the next three years and adding 65 jobs.

Under the proposed deal, Stokes County will pay the incentives over five years after KobeWieland completes the expansion and installation of machinery and equipment, officials said.
