Nothing shows up for a Tarboro location yet on the Corning website, but has a number of jobs listed for the yet-to-open warehouse facility located directly across from what once was Hart’s Chapel Road on U.S. 64 Alternate.

Corning is expected to employ 111 workers at the 800,000-square-foot facility in the Kingsboro Business Park. An additional 35-40 contract vendors are expected to be on-site as well.

Corning is expected to pay about $38,000 per year, not including benefits. The site lists medical, dental and vision insurance, a company-funded pension and a 401K investment plan, along with vacation and holiday pay as comprising the benefits package.

All of the exterior work is completed on the facility and parking lots and driveways have been stripped while the finishing touches are wrapped up inside the massive building.

Corning is expected to open the facility during the first quarter.

Across U.S. 64 Alternate, site work has been completed for several months on the Triangle Tire site, but construction on the facility, which eventually will include 5 million square feet, has yet to begin amid trade difficulties between the United States and China.

Within the past three weeks, Barnhill Construction has moved equipment back in and has been working in earnest on the access road that connects with Kingsboro Road near U.S. 64.
