MPW Industrial Services -- a company that offers a wide range of industrial cleaning, facility management, water purification and environmental management services -- said this week that it has started to construct an industrial water-regeneration plant in Georgetown County.
The initial investment of approximately $10 million is expected to create 32 jobs in Andrews, South Carolina.
“This new plant will enable us to meet the needs of our growing customer base in the Southeast,” Jared Black, general manager of MPW Industrial's Water Division, said. “In addition to being business-friendly, Georgetown is a great location because we can easily reach clients from Florida to Alabama, all of whom depend on us for prompt and timely service.”
“Today, we celebrate MPW Industrial Services’ decision to locate its newest water-regeneration facility in Georgetown County,” Gov. Nikki Haley said. “MPW’s $10 million investment and the 32 new jobs it will create will make a real difference; we’re excited to welcome them to the South Carolina family.”
“With today’s announcement, MPW Industrial Services joins a roster of globally respected firms that have determined that South Carolina is ‘just right’ for business, and I look forward to watching them succeed here for many years to come.” South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
“We are delighted that MPW Industrial Services has chosen to build in Georgetown County and make an investment of this size here,” Georgetown County Council Chairman Johnny Morant said. “The jobs the company will bring will have a lasting impact and greatly benefit our community, and the Andrews area in particular. We are committed to working with and attracting businesses that provide more opportunities for Georgetown County residents, and we consider MPW’s decision a great success.”
“Today’s announcement isn’t just important because of the number of jobs or the level of investment that a great company such as MPW Industrial Services is making in our region,” NESA Executive Committee Chairman Yancey McGill said. “It’s important because they, as a company, know they can be successful in our region. They know that our work force, infrastructure and overall business environment provide them with everything they need to be successful.”
