Canadian-based tissue maker Cascades plans to create 66 new jobs in Scotland County, after receiving more than $560,000 in incentives from the state of North Carolina.
The incentives were approved by the state Economic Investment Committee on Tuesday morning. Gov. Roy Cooper was in Wagram, where the Cascades plant is located, to make the announcement.
Scotland County is required to add incentives worth up to $3.6 million, as part of the agreement. Cascades also must invest $58 million into the Scotland County plant, where employees make bathroom tissue, facial tissues and napkins, among other items.
