DMC Electronics Recycling Corp. ultimately could employ up to 100 people for assembly, shipping and warehouse work, said Tim Troxell, assistant director of the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission.
Gary DiRusso, DMC Electronics chief operating officer, is in town this week to interview candidates for the first 20 jobs. The number of jobs could increase to 50 within a year but it would be a few years before the number would reach 100, DiRusso said in a telephone conversation from his hotel room.
The entry-level jobs start at $10 an hour but most of the positions pay more, he said.
DMC Electronics is leasing from Bowman Development 100,000 square feet of space in the Bowman-Newgate Building in Hagerstown. The 360,000-square-foot building on Hopewell Road opened in January.
