Greensboro welcomes a new era of economic growth


GREENSBORO, NC (WGHP) – The Greensboro Chamber of Commerce held its annual celebratory event at the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts to welcome two great companies to the Triad area.

The event was packed with state and local leaders and people who wanted to learn about new developments coming to the area.

Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro Chief Walker Sanders was honored for winning the Thomas Z-Osborne Distinguished Citizen Award and Cone Health CEO Dr. Mary JoCagle received the Athena for Community Leadership of health.

Representatives from Toyota Battery Plant and Boom Supersonic graced the stage at Tanger Center as they were welcomed by the community.

Both companies gave a preview of what to expect as they continue to push ahead with construction sites.

“The ground is broken. Site preparation is currently underway. Pretty soon you’ll start seeing foundation work and then construction work,” said Kelly Stefanich, Toyota’s general manager for corporate communications.

Boom Supersonic representative Chris Taylor said the company plans to start hiring qualified employees by next year to fly the jets by 2025.

“It takes a whole bunch of multiple disciplines to create something like this, and we think this is the right place to find those people,” Taylor said.

The two projects are expected to create more than 3,500 jobs in the region and more than $2 billion in investment financing.
