Diversey Chooses York County, South Carolina, for Headquarters

10/13/2017
Diversey, a leading global provider of cleaning and hygiene solutions, is locating its corporate headquarters in York County, South Carolina. The development is projected to bring $6.1 million in investment and create approximately 400 jobs.

Located at the Lakemont Business Park, Diversey is establishing a 100,000-square-foot headquarters that will accommodate the new positions. To serve the company’s global customers, 18,500 square feet of lab space will also be created to develop cutting-edge technology for cleaning and hygiene operations.

As an incentive, Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

“I am extremely proud of building Diversey’s new global headquarters in York County, which will become the new home for our employees and their families. Our new state-of-the-art campus will provide the best infrastructure, with the latest digital technologies and lab tools, to create a thriving environment for our employees and attract new talent. This campus, which will be inaugurated in the first quarter of 2018, will be a customer-centric hub designed to continue exceeding our customers’ expectations through our sustainability and Internet of Clean vision. It will exhibit our values and aspire to become the preferred place to work in the Carolinas,” said Diversey President & CEO Ilham Kadri.

“Diversey’s decision to locate their new headquarters in York County and create 400 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. We know that this is just the beginning of an important and lasting relationship between Diversey and our great state,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“South Carolina has become a magnet for high-tech and innovative companies, including those in the life sciences sector. Today’s announcement by Diversey is further evidence that our pro-business strategy continues to pay off, and we’re proud that York County will be the home to yet another corporate headquarters,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
