    If you live in Hampstead NC you probably work in Wilmington; at 8am on weekdays you are met with an exodus of vehicles headed South on 17 towards Wilmington and back again at the end of the day. As Hampstead NC continues to grow more businesses are willing to establish a foot-hold recognizing that the established work force will help them grow their business; The article below in the Star-News on “Atlantic Barn & Timber” is such an example – the next 10 years will bring a renewed focus on business opportunities and jobs to the area near the “The Holly Shelter Swamp."

    A family-owned company that builds materials for timber-frame homes will base its manufacturing operations in the Hampstead area, officials announced Monday in Burgaw.

    Timber Frame HomeAtlantic Barn & Timber plans to initially hire 18 employees who will work at a 22,500-square-foot facility on N.C. 210, said Scott Satterfield, chief executive officer of Wilmington Industrial Development.

    The company will begin hiring workers in the next 45 days and is scheduled to open in January, officials said. Cape Fear Community College will train the workers.

    Atlantic Barn & Timber is a national supplier of exposed timber frames and insulating panels for home construction. According to the company Web site, the company was founded in Vermont as Dover Building Company in the 1970s by Bob and Margie North.

    The company grew, and in 1990, daughter Sharon North Vilcins and husband Ken Vilcins established New England Timber Works, which develops custom timber-frame homes. Atlantic Barn & Timber is an affiliate of New England Timber Works.

    Sharon North Vilcins, managing partner of Atlantic Barn & Timber, said production for both companies is moving to Hampstead. The company will retain a sales staff in Vermont.

    The Vilcins will also move their family to the area. They said they were struck by how hard local leaders and economic developers worked to bring them here.

    “Ken and I are ecstatic to move our very young family down here,” said Sharon North Vilcins. “The chemistry was just perfectly in line for a move for us.”

    On Monday, elected leaders, economic development officials and the company’s owners gathered in Burgaw to make the announcement.

    Satterfield said studies have shown that building material companies are very valuable to the area’s economy, and Atlantic Barn & Timber fits perfectly with that vision.

    David Williams, chairman of the Pender County commissioners, said teamwork is helping lure a great business to the county.

    “Success breeds success breeds success,” he said. “We want good clean, environmentally friendly industry to go along with the good growth we are seeing.”
