Inmar, a provider of commercial networks and services, is adding 212 jobs and plans to invest $24.5 million to expand its operations in Winston-Salem.

If the privately held firm meets employment goals it will receive $237,000 from the One North Carolina Fund and another $4.2 million in payroil tax rebates through a Job Development Investment Grant.

The One North Carolina Fund also requires a local match.

Gov. Bev Perdue announced the expansion. 

Inmar already employs 640 people across North Carolina and some 4,200 worldwide.

“The fact that Inmar chose to expand with us in North Carolina is a testament to our top-notch business climate and the potential to develop a tremendously skilled workforce,” Perdue said in a statement.

Inmar provides supply chain, promotion and pharmaceutical related services.

“Inmar has positioned itself to be competitive in the marketplace and we are honored that the City of Winston-Salem, Forsyth County and the State of North Carolina support our vision for economic growth and expansion,” said David Mounts, Inmar’s chief executive officer, in a statement “Inmar is all about collaboration and after working with the Governor, the Commissioner and the Mayor it is clear that they are true professionals at collaboration, which results in job creation for the people of North Carolina.”

Salaries for the new job will average $72,783 plus benefits.
