RALEIGH, N.C. – , a high-tech printing firm, is expanding its operations in Concord and adding 37 jobs.

DNP IMS, a subsidiary of Dai Nippon Printing, is investing $24.8 million over three years in the project, according to an announcement from Gov. Bev Perdue.

The company will receive a $80,000 grant from the state’s One North Carolina Fund as an incentive for the project. One North Carolina grants require a local match.

DNP IMS has developed technology for use in photo printing kiosks and other printing uses.

The jobs will pay an average wage of $46,757, plus benefits.

“The addition of the coating line is the realization of one of the original goals for this facility set more than 15 years ago,” said Keigo Hayakawa, president of DNP IMS America. “Having additional coating domestically provides increased opportunity and more possibilities for greater long-term success for the community, DNP and our employees.”
