Edenton Mayor and NC East Board member Roland Vaughan welcomed Naddei and his company during Friday’s announcement ceremony. Having an innovative product development company choose to locate in our region is very exciting. Thanks to all the hard work done by our NC East team to land MegaPulse and we pledge to Ross Naddei and his team our ongoing support as he grows his customer base in the U.S,” he said. Naddei said NC East’s connections to Vidant, Bayliss Boats, Barnhill Construction and other companies in the region as well as individual cities/counties has allowed MegaPulse to have their product tested and validated by third party users. Now they can use these testimonials as they market their product across the U.S. and beyond, he said. “Bottom line – if they had gone to a big city, they would have been just another small company asking for favors – we recognized their high-growth potential and made the decision to recruit them to eastern NC. It worked,” Chaffee said.
