Building products manufacturer Huber Engineered Woods plans to establish operations in Dillon County, S.C. The 109,200-square-foot facility will treat paper materials used in ZIP system sheathing and supply a critical component of the ZIP System panel manufacturing process.
Huber said the new facility will also implement the highest levels of safety standards, environmental protection measures for pollution and abatement, and sustainability. The Charlotte, N.C.-based company will invest $30 million into the new facility.
“Huber Engineered Woods LLC would like to thank the South Carolina Department of Commerce for welcoming this facility into the community,” Huber CFO and vice president of strategy Kirk Blanchette said in a news release. “We look forward to being a key partner in the future success of the county and the state and are pleased to bring new employment opportunities to Dillon County and the surrounding areas. Environmental health and safety are core tenets to business practice at Huber.”
The facility is projected to be operational by late 2020. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded Dillon County in South Carolina a $400,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to assist with the costs of site preparation and building construction.
