Angus-Palm, a metal fabricator of engineered cabs, will invest $13 million to expand its existing manufacturing facility at Pee Dee Commerce City in Florence County, South Carolina, with plans to add 55 employees to its 176 member workforce over the next four years.

The firm designs and manufactures high-quality, custom-engineered open and enclosed cabs and operator stations for a wide range of heavy mobile equipment in several end-markets including agriculture, construction and mining. The company will employ fabricators, welders, painters, assemblers, material handlers and engineers. Safety training, lean manufacturing, on the job training and engineering/technician training will also be part of the expansion. In addition to its Florence facility, Angus-Palm has locations in Watertown, South Dakota and Greeneville, Tennessee.

“We are pleased to expand our facility and add to the workforce in Florence,” said Angus-Palm Florence Operations Manager Chris Drose. “The expansion will allow us to grow the business by adding several new product lines to our current offering.”

“It’s exciting to see another one of our existing businesses grow its footprint here in South Carolina. We celebrate Angus-Palm’s decision to invest $13 million and create 55 new jobs in Florence,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.

“Today’s announcement by Angus-Palm builds on the Palmetto State’s manufacturing renaissance. Every one of these new jobs will create an impact in the Florence area and beyond,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

Florence County Council Chairman James Schofield said, “This is further proof that we are moving forward and staying competitive in our quest to bring in industry and grow Florence County. On behalf of Florence County Council, I congratulate them on their success.”
