Ox Bodies will open High Point plant in October
Ox Bodies, a subsidiary of Federal Signal Corp., will open a manufacturing facility here, the High Point Economic Development Corp. announced Wednesday.
The company will hire 15 people the first year at an annual average wage of $49,000, and operations are expected to begin in October, the announcement said.
The High Point City Council in April authorized up to $87,600 in performance-based incentives for the Ox Bodies project.
The company had been looking for an East Coast location and chose High Point after considering sites in four other counties in North Carolina and one county in South Carolina.
Ox Bodies will create at least 40 jobs and increase the tax base by at least $2 million, the announcement said.
