The South Carolina Department of Commerce, Columbia, S.C., USA, the Barnwell County, S.C., Economic Development Commission, and the SouthernCarolina Alliance recently announced that South Carolina Tissue (SCT) will locate its new production facility in Barnwell County. The $140 million investment is expected to generate 200 new jobs over the next five years.

"We have spent more than a year working diligently with the state of South Carolina to find a location for our new plant. In the search for our location, we were seeking a business-friendly environment with a talented work force and logistic superiority; we have found that in Barnwell County," said Marc Gilson, SVP of Development for SCT.

SCT will locate its new facility at the S.C. Advanced Technology Park in Barnwell County, and says that it will be installing state-of-the-art tissue manufacturing equipment and advanced post-consumer fiber recycling processes to supply the tissue machine. The facility will be designed to meet LEED Gold Standards. Tissue parent rolls produced by SCT will be sold to convertors that supply the consumer and away-from-home markets.

SCT will begin construction of the facility in first quarter of 2011and plans to have it completed by early first quarter 2012. The facility will produce parent rolls of tissue, towel, and napkin. The company is expected to begin hiring three months prior to the commissioning of the plan.

South Carolina Tissue LLC is a privately owned company. The principals are Ray Stoveken, CEO, and Andrew Thompson, CFO.
