NORTH CAROLINA SPOTLIGHT, page 4
Eastern N.C. Logs Laudable 2001North Carolina's Eastern Region, a 13-county partnership, ranks first in the state in jobs created in a recent report released by the North Carolina Dept. of Commerce. The region created 3,840 jobs, including 1,452 by the BSH Home Appliances expansion in Craven County.
Tom Greenwood, Eastern Region executive director, says companies are looking at the area's available work force and favorable cost of living.
Environmental Networks International (ENI) of Newton Center, Mass., plans a Southeast Regional Office in Edenton, located in the Albemarle Sound region of the state. The company hopes to eventually establish Edenton as its corporate headquarters. ENI develops software tools that automate procurement, bidding and management processes between buyers and sellers.
"The opportunity for growth through our relocation to North Carolina is immense," says ENI's founder, Tully Ryan.
Recruitment of ENI was a collaboration between the Edenton-Chowan Development Corp., the Town of Edenton, Chowan County and the Northeast Partnership, a regional development organization representing 16 counties.
"ENI made the decision to locate in Edenton in large part because the community wanted them here," says Bob Spivey, Partnership chairman.
