Apr 30, 2013 -- 11:27am

Sussex County is planting the seeds of economic prosperity, awarding nearly $140,000 in grants today to two companies – one moving to Delaware, the other already here and expanding – that will add more than 170 jobs to the local economy.

The County Council approved one-time economic development grants to ILC/Grayling Industries and Atlantis Industries Corp. $92,000 goes to ILC/Garyling which plans to move 115 jobs to the Seaford area from Mexico later this year as part of its plastic containment systems manufacturing operation. $44,800 goes to Atlantis Industries of Milton, which will keep its current 36 jobs here and add 20 more for its custom injection molding and tool-making business.

The grants are the County’s contribution to incentive packages of local and State funds aimed at spurring job growth that are being used to help the businesses take root in Sussex County.
