Walker Emulsions, a producer of asphalt emulsions and industrial emulsions for the building products industries based in Ontario, Canada
, is investing $4.65 million to open a facility in Orangeburg County, South Carolina
Walker Emulsions, which expects to begin operations late this summer, will be acquiring the 53,000 square-foot Engineered Polymer Solutions Building.
"We're very excited to be opening a new facility in Orangeburg County. Our choice to locate here was in large part due to the tremendous support and assistance we received from the Orangeburg County Economic Development Commission and South Carolina Department of Commerce. They welcomed us with open arms,” Archie Reynolds, Executive Vice-President of Walker Emulsions said.
"With this announcement we are once again proving that South Carolina is a top choice for foreign investment and place businesses of all kinds can find success and opportunities to grow. We applaud Walker Emulsions for opening this new facility in Orangeburg - representing a $4.65 million investment and approximately 11 new jobs for that area,” Gov. Nikki Haley
Since 2011, South Carolina has recruited more than $6.1 billion in capital investment and more than 15,000 jobs from foreign investors. What a testament to our great state that Walker Industries would bring their first facility in the Southeastern United States to Orangeburg,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
"We certainly welcome companies to the Central SC Region that are dedicated to the environment and the communities which they locate operations. Walker Industries Group will find Orangeburg County to be business-friendly and cost effective as they service the North American market,” said David King of Central SC Alliance.
