Augusta Fiberglass Coatings Expands Blackville, South Carolina, Operations

10/16/2017
Augusta Fiberglass Coatings, Inc., a leading manufacturer of custom fiberglass reinforced plastic equipment, will invest $625,000 to expand its existing operations in Blackville, South Carolina.

The expansion will include the construction of a 12,000-square-foot building, increasing Augusta Fiberglass’s manufacturing capacity at this facility, which currently employs 230.

Headquartered on more than 300 acres in South Carolina and with more than 300,000 square feet of manufacturing space, Augusta Fiberglass Coatings annually converts millions of pounds of resin and fiberglass fabric into custom-designed fiberglass tanks, ducts, scrubbers, stack liners and other equipment.

The company’s expertise in the use of resin and catalyst formulations, including fire-retardant additives and materials, allows the Augusta Fiberglass team to produce equipment with the ultimate resistance to chemical corrosion.

“We are delighted to be able to expand our operations in South Carolina to better serve our customers while investing in the local community where our business was founded. We appreciate the support shown to our company in this expansion by Barnwell County, Southern Carolina Alliance and Governor McMaster’s team at the S.C. Department of Commerce,” said Augusta Fiberglass Coatings President John W. Boyd.

“The fact that Augusta Fiberglass has chosen to expand in South Carolina and continue to invest in our people is something for our state to be proud of. This sends a signal to the whole world that our state is open for business,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

“South Carolina’s manufacturing industry continues to thrive, and today we celebrate yet another victory for that sector as Augusta Fiberglass announces the expansion of their operations in Barnwell County. We celebrate all that they’ve achieved in our state and look forward to watching them enjoy even greater success in the future,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
