Raleigh, N.C.

Armorock, LLC, the world’s largest manufacture of polymer concrete structures, will establish a new manufacturing facility in Edgecombe County, creating 55 jobs, Governor Roy Cooper announced today. The company plans to invest $6.6 million in Battleboro in order to be closer to its growing customer base in the Southeast.

“Armorock is the latest example of a global manufacturer choosing North Carolina because it is the right fit for their business,” said Governor Cooper. “North Carolina wins jobs based on a number of reasons, but most important is the strong workforce to support business growth.”

Armorock Founders have been in the business of manufacturing wastewater collection structures for more than 50 years.  The company’s rigid polymer concrete structures can withstand H2S corrosion unlike coated or lined traditional precast products.  In addition to meeting all engineering requirements, Armorock’s products are affordable and sustainable, two criteria critical for municipalities needing to upgrade existing sewer systems and new projects.

“Armorock is excited to manufacture our sustainable corrosion proof sewer structures here in North Carolina. Locating here will reduce costs for the local infrastructure CIP projects and accelerate revenue growth. We are confident in the world class work force available to us in Edgecombe County. We look forward to growing roots here and building trust with our local team and community. We are grateful for the warm welcome extended to us,” said Vince Bussio, President of Armorock.
