Mayodan Expects A Multiplier Effect On Jobs With Ruger
Officials with the Town of Mayodan and Rockingham County expect that the manufacturing jobs brought there with Ruger's new manufacturing plant will only be the beginning. They expect a 2:1 ratio of jobs created as a result of Ruger's expansion. These new jobs will come from both suppliers and service businesses such as restaurants and coffee shops.
WFMY News 2 in Greensboro reports on this expected multiplier effect. They also report on the site selection process that Ruger and its advisor Greyhill Advisors used to decide on Mayodan. I found it interesting that went so far as to attend the local churches to get a feel for the area.
