A Passaic County business, along with its employees and suppliers, joined the growing list of those benefitting from Walmart’s 10-year commitment to buy an additional $250 billion in additional products that support American jobs. Incoco, a global leader in the manufacturing of nail polish, employs approximately 100 people at its Clifton factory. Local and state dignitaries recognized Incoco’s investment in the community at an event today that included a tour of the Incoco facility as well as a check presentation by Walmart to Spectrum, which provides services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout New Jersey.
“Walmart has made a significant difference for our company, our employees, and our community,” said Fa Park, founder of Incoco. “We have had great sales and continue to employ approximately 100 people at our Clifton manufacturing plant and we recently opened an office in New York.”
Based on data from Boston Consulting Group, it’s estimated that 1 million new U.S. jobs will be created through Walmart’s initiative, including direct manufacturing job growth of approximately 250,000, and indirect job growth of approximately 750,000 in the support and service sectors.
“Our customers have told us that second to price, where products are made influences their purchase decisions,” said Cindi Marsiglio, vice president, US manufacturing. “We are focused on buying great quality products that create jobs in communities across the U.S. It makes sense for our customers, our communities and our company.”
As part of today’s event, Walmart presented a check for $78,000 to Spectrum for Living in support of adult training centers and job training opportunities.Related Articles:
