NY manufacturer to bring 45 jobs to Mooresville

A global manufacturer of combustion equipment and oven control systems for the baking industry will bring 45 jobs to Mooresville when it moves its headquarters and manufacturing operations from New Rochelle, N.Y., in March, local economic development leaders announced Thursday.

Flynn Burner Corp. also supplies adhesion equipment for the packaging, plastics and paper industries.

The town of Mooresville will provide an incentive of $69,600 over five years based on the company’s planned $3 million investment and the jobs, said Robert Carney, executive director of the Mooresville-South Iredell Economic Development Corp. Iredell County committed $58,200.

Combined with incentives assistance from MI-Connection, Mooresville and Davidson’s government-run cable, TV and Internet provider, incentives total $127,800, Carney said.

Flynn Burner President Dom Medina cited the Mooresville area’s quality of life and its workforce among reasons for the company’s move to the area.

Operating under the alias Project Warm, the relocation came via the Charlotte Regional Partnership working with the Mooresville-South Iredell Economic Development Corp., Carney said.
