PAGELAND — A stainless-steel equipment manufacturer will set up shop in the Lynches River Industrial Park and bring 50 jobs and a $2.6 million investment to Chesterfield County by year’s end, state and local officials said Tuesday.
Waxhaw, North Carolina-based Titan Stainless plans to build a 50,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in the industrial park, according to the S.C. Department of Commerce. Construction should be complete in the fourth quarter of 2015.
“(The) Chesterfield County Council is extremely pleased to have Titan-Stainless as our newest corporate neighbor and look forward to many years of working together,” county council Chairman James M. Rivers said in a statement.
Titan Stainless’ line of products includes cabinets, dish tables, floor troughs, sinks and work tables. Primarily serving the food service and health care industries, the company only operates with National Sanitation Foundation-approved equipment. In addition to the design and manufacturing of its products, Titan also offers professional installation.
“We’re excited to welcome Titan Stainless to South Carolina’s growing manufacturing industry,” Gov. Nikki Haley said in a statement. “This $2.6 million investment and the 50 new jobs it will create truly will make a difference in Chesterfield County, and we look forward to watching the positive impact Titan Stainless will have on the local community.”
The facility will allow Titan to ramp up production in order to meet increased consumer demand, officials said. The company was established in the Charlotte suburb of Waxhaw in February 2013.
“We at Titan Stainless are very excited about our move to Pageland,” company President Dillon Melton said. “The foresight of the state and local governments in South Carolina has created a business-friendly atmosphere that allows for job creation. This benefits all South Carolinians. We are proud to call South Carolina ‘home!’”
Titan is owned and operated by partners with more than 60 years of experience in stainless-steel fabrication. Those interested in working for Titan Stainless should visit the S.C. Works website at www.jobs.scworks.org to search for positions and apply online.
“South Carolina continues to lead the manufacturing renaissance thanks to companies like Titan Stainless that are choosing to make their products in our state,” South Carolina Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt said. “This announcement is terrific news for the Chesterfield community, and I look forward to watching Titan succeed there for many years to come.”
