The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Bladen’s Bloomin’ Agri-Industrial, Inc. to assist with the renovation of an industrial incubator to accommodate the expansion of Anthem Displays, which is currently located in the Elizabethtown Airport Industrial Park. Anthem Displays manufactures frames for and assembles LED displays at its facility in Elizabethtown. It manufactures the LED panels in Boulder Colorado. This project will consolidate the manufacturing of the displays in Elizabethtown, transferring the Colorado production to North Carolina, creating 17 jobs, and adding over $1 million in equipment and machinery. To accommodate the expansion, Bladen’s Bloomin’ is expending over $600,000 to renovate and expand the building in which Anthem Displays will locate and installing a cleanroom and HVAC equipment necessary for manufacture of the LED displays. Golden LEAF funds will be used for renovation costs. The building will be leased to Anthem Displays at fair market value.
Any project more than a couple of years old may not reflect current Board priorities.
