A packaging company is expanding its operations in Wilkes County and expects to create 63 jobs over the next three years.

Gov. Pat McCrory’s office announced this week that InterFlex Acquisition Co. plans to invest $10.2 million in its facility in Wilkesboro, about 60 miles west of Winston-Salem.

InterFlex is eligible to receive a $180,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. The grant requires a local match, and the company must meet investment and job-creation milestones.

The average annual wage for the new jobs will be $37,854, plus benefits. That’s just above the Wilkes County average of $31,512.

InterFlex, which has its North American headquarters in Wilkesboro, employs 104 people in the state. The company makes packaging products used in the food industry.

InterFlex was acquired in 2012 by Nicolet Capital, a Chicago-based private equity firm.
