Clorox bringing 158 new jobs in vitamin division to North Carolina
The Clorox Company is going to create 158 new jobs in Durham in its vitamins and supplements division, according to the governor’s office.
Gov. Roy Cooper’s office announced Tuesday that the company will invest $7.5 million to bring the division’s headquarters to Durham and expand existing operations in the city.
The supplements business makes brands of vitamins including RenewLife and Rainbow Light. Clorox’s Burt’s Bees division already employs 500 at its Durham headquarters and a manufacturing plant in Morrisville.
The state has approved a Job Development Investment Grant for the company that will allow it to be reimbursed by up to nearly $2.2 million over 12 years. The state estimates that the new project will grow the state’s economy by many times that over the 12-year course of the grant.
