Healthcare US Co. Plans Winnsboro, South Carolina, Mattresses Plant

12/12/2018
Healthcare US Co., Ltd., a venture of China-based Healthcare Co., Ltd., plans to establish new memory-foam mattresses production plant in Winnsboro, South Carolina. The company’s $45 million investment is projected to create 250 new jobs in Fairfield County.

The company is expected to launch its new, 650,000-square-foot facility in the first quarter of 2019 at 1 Guardian Way in Winnsboro, 29 miles north of Columbia.

As an incentive, Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $300,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Fairfield County to assist with the costs of building renovations.

“We’re happy to be establishing this new facility in Fairfield County, and we are very appreciative of the ongoing support from both the local and state governments. This is a milestone for our company, and we are excited to support the community we will soon be calling home,” said Healthcare Co., Ltd. President James Ni.

“South Carolina has been attracting business from all over the world for years because we have worked hard to create a business friendly climate and a workforce that is second to none. We’re thrilled that Healthcare US Co., Ltd. has chosen to join the ranks of international companies that call our state home and look forward to many years of success, Governor Henry McMaster said.

“South Carolina’s ongoing economic success can be attributed, in part, to our manufacturing prowess and ability to recruit foreign direct investment. This $45 million investment in Fairfield County only reinforces that notion. We look forward to this new partnership with Healthcare US Co., Ltd,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.

“We welcome Healthcare US Co., Ltd. to Fairfield County and the Central S.C. region. The company’s enthusiasm for this new location shows promise for great opportunities within the county and for the local workforce. We are excited to see things take shape in the coming months for Healthcare US Co., Ltd. and our friends in Fairfield,” noted Mike Brennan, Chairman of Central S.C. Alliance.

“We are excited to welcome Healthcare US Co., Ltd. to Fairfield County and the I-77 Alliance region. Healthcare US Co., Ltd.’s commitment to Fairfield County is a testament to the strong manufacturing workforce in the county and the support of county government and community leaders. Fairfield County’s proximity to Charlotte Douglas International Airport and the numerous amenities of the Charlotte and Columbia metro areas continue to make it an extremely attractive community for foreign and domestic investment,” said Rich Fletcher, CEO of South Carolina I-77 Alliance.
