Palmetto Synthetics To Expand Plant

Kingstree, S.C.-based Palmetto Synthetics LLC — a manufacturer of polyester, nylon, and other specialty man-made staple fibers — plans to invest $3 million to expand its 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. The project, the first of a two-part expansion, will add 30,000 square feet of space, a new production line and 25 new employees at the plant. The expansion is scheduled to be finished and the new line to begin operations by February 2009.

“Palmetto Synthetics produces high-quality specialty polyester fibers used in a range of applications, from apparel to automotive products,” said Joe Taylor, South Carolina’s secretary of commerce. “The company’s decision to expand its facility in South Carolina speaks favorably to the state’s business-friendly climate and skilled workforce. Thanks to the efforts of state and local officials, Williamsburg County will benefit from this investment.”
