Raleigh, NC -- Gov. Bev Perdue announced Thursday that Inmar, Inc., a technology company that operates collaborative commerce networks, will expand its corporate headquarters in Winston-Salem.
The company plans to create 212 jobs over the next five years and invest $24.5 million. The project was made possible in part by state grants from the Job Development Investment Grant and the One North Carolina Fund award.
"Creating jobs is my top priority," said Gov. Perdue, "The fact that Inmar chose to expand with us in North Carolina is a testament to our top-notch business climate and the potential to develop a tremendously skilled workforce."
Supported by a continuous investment in technology, Inmar operates three cost-effective networks: Supply Chain, Promotion and Pharmaceutical Services. With the power of speed, these networks move billions of dollars annually, and significant amounts of information and goods among trading partners.
"Inmar has positioned itself to be competitive in the marketplace and we are honored that the City of Winston-Salem, Forsyth County and the State of North Carolina support our vision for economic growth and expansion," said David Mounts, Inmar CEO. "Inmar is all about collaboration and after working with the Governor, the Commissioner and the Mayor it is clear that they are true professionals at collaboration, which results in job creation for the people of North Carolina."
Inmar is a privately held company that currently employs more than 640 people in Winston-Salem, and in Forsyth and Mecklenburg Counties. They also have facilities in many states, including Georgia, Texas, Mexico and Canada, with more than 4,200 employees worldwide.
The company began as a coupon processor in 1980 and now offers an array of business services to its 1,700 retail, pharmaceutical and manufacturing clients.
