A leading manufacturer of agricultural trusses for the poultry and livestock industries, Agtruss Inc. will invest $2.8 million to expand its manufacturing center in Lee County, South Carolina.
Established in 1995, Agtruss, Inc. has added residential businesses to its portfolio and now sells trusses to several building suppliers, including local and national retailers. This latest expansion is a result of the company procuring a high-volume contract with a large agricultural builder. To meet growing demand, Agtruss, Inc. will be building another 100-foot production line featuring additional production equipment.
“We appreciate the support of South Carolina and TheLINK Economic Development Alliance for all the help they have provided. We are looking forward to working with them to make our future expansion plans possible,” said Agtruss, Inc. Owner Larry Earls.
“We’re always happy to celebrate a business’ investment in South Carolina, but it’s a real source of pride when it’s one of our existing industries that has decided to expand. I offer my congratulations to Agtruss, Inc. and look forward to supporting them in any way we can moving forward,” Governor Henry McMaster said.
“The ongoing success of our existing industries speaks volumes about the pro-business environment we’ve worked hard to cultivate here in South Carolina. Today’s announcement by Agtruss, Inc. is just the latest example of what can happen when Team South Carolina works together,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
“We are excited about the progress of Agtruss, Inc. in Bishopville and are committed to ensuring a seamless expansion process with hopes of continued growth and job creation,” noted TheLINK Economic Development Alliance Chairman Gordon Eckley.
