An Indiana company that makes outdoor furniture from recycled plastic is opening a new North Carolina manufacturing site that expects to employ about 380 workers in five years.

A committee of North Carolina officials that approves major tax breaks on Tuesday cleared Poly-Wood LLC to receive up to $5 million in state and local incentives if it meets hiring and investment targets.

The jobs will pay an average of $43,300, greater than the Person County average.

The company will produce outdoor furniture from post-consumer plastic bottles like those used to distribute milk and detergent. The Syracuse, Indiana-based company’s new site near Roxboro will also process plastic for resale.

The company also considered locations in Virginia and South Carolina.
