Several new industrial sites in the Bronx will create more jobs in the area
The city's Economic Development Corporation announced Tuesday that several industrial sites will be developed in the Bronx creating more jobs in the area. According to the city, the Ideal Steel Supply Corporation will build a 100,000 square foot facility in North Zerega. That development should add about 100 permanent jobs. The Star Candle Company is moving into the borough and that should bring about 50 new jobs. The announcement is good news as the Bronx unemployment rate remains just around 8 percent, which is higher than city and state averages. Some of these projects could be complete by this December.
