Not present was Tim Tatum, Blue Ridge District representative.

Stik-Pak Solutions was welcomed to Summit View Business Park at a groundbreaking ceremony held at the company’s future home on Tuesday.

The contract packaging firm will create up to 60 new high-paying jobs as it invests $14.3 million to relocate and expand its company to the business park.

The new site will be completed in two 50,000-square-foot phases on a 5-acre pad. Phase one will be completed by later this year or early next year with the second phase scheduled to be completed by 2023.

The new production jobs will pay an average annual salary of $45,760 plus benefits.

The company currently operates out of a 25,000-square-foot facility in the Franklin County Commerce Center on U.S. 220 South and employs 35 workers, according to an Oct. 15 news release.
