RALEIGH -- NetApp will expand its organization into Wake County.
Gov. Bev Perdue announced Monday that the company plans to create 460 new jobs over four years. This investment is worth more than $75 million into a new facility in Research Triangle Park.
“Creating jobs is what motivates me every day,” said Perdue, in a statement. “North Carolina is a tremendous place to do business and our highly-skilled workforce is equipped to support high tech companies like NetApp in their desire to expand here.”
The project was made possible in part by a state grant from the Job Development Investment Grant.
In 2011, NetApp ranked first on the Triangle Business Journal’s annual "Best Places to Work" in the Research Triangle Park list.
“NetApp has had a long and successful presence in RTP and we are excited to build on our relationship with the state of North Carolina, Wake County and the surrounding area,” said Denise Cox, senior vice president of Global Support for NetApp.
