Berkeley Expansion Brings 80 New North County Jobs
On Feb. 4, Lafayette Industries North, Inc. broke ground on an expansion to its facility in Berkeley that will add more than 80 new jobs to the area over the next 18 months. The $4.4 million project is being funded by a $2.3 million grant from the Productive Living Board and Lafayette’s “North County Strong” capital campaign to raise $2.1 million. Lafayette’s capital campaign was launched by a $100,000 donation from Emerson, which led to additional individual gifts, as well as a challenge grant by the Mabee Foundation. Combined, the gifts have put the organization halfway toward its overall capital campaign goal.
