Carolina Poly, Inc., a venture of Poly-America, one of the largest polyethylene film manufacturers in the United States, is expanding and adding to its overall manufacturing capability at its existing facility in Chester, South Carolina. The company’s $25 million capital investment is projected to create 75 new jobs.
The company produces several product lines, including trash bags, plastic sheeting, silage bags and shrink films. With sister companies and divisions across the country, Poly-America launched Carolina Poly in Chester County in 2015.
“In South Carolina, we’re proud of our pro-business environment that supports and enables continued growth of existing businesses. I congratulate Carolina Poly on this great announcement, and we look forward to supporting them for years to come,” said. Governor Henry McMaster.
“When a South Carolina business grows the way Carolina Poly has, it’s yet another testament that we are a state that fosters manufacturing innovations. We appreciate this great company’s commitment and their relationship with Chester County and our state,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt noted.
“While we like new industries locating in our county, nothing is better than seeing an existing company expand their operations within our county. Local growth speaks volumes about the pro-business environment we have in our community and may encourage others to invest here. We congratulate Carolina Poly on their expansion and look forward to future successes here in Chester County,” Chester County Supervisor K. Shane Stuart explained.
“The expansion of Carolina Poly’s county operations is a testament to the company’s vested interest in Chester County. We congratulate them and look forward to their continued success in the future,’ said Chester Development Association Chairman Mike Enoch.
