Crossair - Copy

We recently had the chance to stop by CrossAir LLC's brand new building in Ellenboro, and we are so excited to watch their business continue to grow. Congratulations on your expansion, CrossAir!
On June 16, 2022, Governor Roy Cooper and N.C. Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders announced that Rutherford County was awarded a Building Reuse Grant for business expansion and job creation at CrossAir, LLC. This $50,000 grant will support the reuse of a 36,689-square-foot building in Ellenboro. The building will be occupied by CrossAir, a manufacturer of ventilation systems and air pollution control equipment. This project is expected to create 7 jobs with an investment of $772,827 by the company.
“With the help of these grants, we are able to attract new jobs to rural communities across the state,” Governor Cooper said. “These investments generate more economic opportunity, renovated buildings, enhanced access to healthcare and fortified water and sewer service, all of which improve the lives and livelihoods of rural residents.”
“Employers are locating and expanding every day in resilient rural North Carolina, demonstrating their commitment to bolstering our competitive economy,” N.C. Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders said. “These infrastructure grants allow us to welcome manufacturers and other businesses to our state, creating a mutually-beneficial relationship between our local communities and a number of innovative companies.”
CrossAir, LLC has been in business in Rutherford County since 2002. This Building Reuse Grant will support the renovation of their new building in Ellenboro, which will allow their business to grow tremendously.
We would like to thank CrossAir, LLC for its continued investment in our community with its purchase of this new building and the commitment to create new jobs in Rutherford County.
The Economic Development office was pleased to work with the The Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, The NC Department of Commerce, and Rutherford County Board of Commissioners and others who assisted with this expansion project.
