GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Railroad Co. is buying more land in a proposed industrial site south of Greensboro.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported (https://bit.ly/28QSSzw) that the railroad will buy an additional 100 acres in the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite.

Railroad president Scott Saylor says the purchase is in cooperation with the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite Foundation.

Saylor says the additional land will help ensure that the site can meet the needs of large-scale industry.

He says the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite and other large sites in North Carolina will improve the state’s competitive advantage in recruiting a major manufacturer.

Local and regional economic developers hope the site in the northeast corner of Randolph County on the Guilford County line will attract a car manufacturer or other heavy manufacturing company.
