J&L Wire To Locate Manufacturing Facility In Walterboro, South Carolina

J&L Wire is opening a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at 387 Mable T. Willis Boulevard in the former Press Printing building in Walterboro, South Carolina. The 31,000-square-foot facility is situated on 5.1 acres in Colleton County. A leading manufacturer of galvanized wire decking and shelving used in warehouse storage, material handling and logistics, the company is investing $2.5 million in the project, which is expected to create 50 new jobs.

“We are excited about the market opportunities in the Southeast and believe the South Carolina site will position us to profitably expand our core business,” J&L Wire General Manager Gary Hyde said.

“It’s exciting to see a company like J&L Wire, which is dedicated to making products right here in the U.S., make the decision to establish operations in South Carolina. J&L’s $2.5 million investment and the 50 new jobs it means for Colleton County are real reasons to celebrate in Colleton and across our entire state,” said Governor Nikki Haley. “South Carolina continues to lead the nation’s manufacturing renaissance, and today’s announcement by J&L Wire reinforces that notion,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
