  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    Greenville Industries was incorporated December 29, 1950, by eight Greenville, North Carolina, businessmen as a for-profit land-holding company that sold real estate at a reduced price to new or expanding industries to encourage them to view Pitt County as a good place to set up business. The point was to diversify an economy that had previously been mainly agricultural. During the 1960s and 1970s, such companies as Empire Brushes, Vermont American, Burroughs Wellcome, Fieldcrest Mills, National Boat Works (Grady-White) and Eaton Corporation (NACCO Materials Handling) came to Pitt County as a result of Greenville Industries. In the late 1980s and the 1990s, Greenville Industries started developing what became Indigreen Corporate Park. The assets of the Greenville Industries, Inc., were acquired by the Pitt County Committee of 100 in 2008.
