Penn Compression Molding, a national manufacturer of custom molding thermoset composites, will expand its Smithfield operation center. Penn's $3 million expansion will result in the addition of 40 new jobs for Johnston County.
This is great news for NC House District 28 and Johnston County. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Raleigh to pass more business-friendly legislation and working with our local leaders to make sure that our communities prosper.
I would like to thank the Johnston County Board of Commissioners, Smithfield Mayor Andy Moore, Johnston County Economic Development Director Chris Johnson, and many others for their hard work on this project.
