Oxco Inc., a light manufacturer and supplier of non-woven materials, will launch operations in York County.
“Given our company’s success and growth in recent years, and therefore our need for a larger facility, we’re delighted to be planning for a move to York County,” Oxco President C.T. Chu said in a news release. “The attractive incentives offered by the county and state, and the convenient location with access to Interstate 77 for our employees, distributors and customers alike, made the move an easy decision.”
The company’s new project, which will be located at Lakemont Business Park in Fort Mill, will bring roughly $13 million in new capital investment and is expected to bring 130 new jobs. The project involves a 150,000-square-foot facility.
“Oxco’s decision to invest in York County and create 130 new jobs serves as an opportunity for South Carolinians to show the world how special of a place our state is, and we are confident they will do just that,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement. “We know that this is just the beginning of an important and lasting relationship between Oxco and our state, and we look forward to what the future holds for this great partnership.”
