Halifax County has completed construction of rail spur improvements to serve JBB Packaging LLC, a plastics manufacturer located in the Becker Industrial Park. The $525,000 project was financed with grant funds from NC Railroad Corporation and the NC Department of Transportation and constructed by STX Corporation. Now fully operational, the rail spur is used by JBB Packaging to receive plastic pellets used in the company’s manufacturing process.
JBB Packaging purchased the former Flambeau building in 2018 and has completed a major upfit of the facility. JBB manufactures plastic film and other products and began operations in March.
