Jemison Metals, a leading supplier of carbon flat-rolled products, plans to expand operations at Live Oak Industrial Park Sumter, South Carolina. The more than $14 million investment is expected to create 57 new jobs.
The new product line will occupy 70,000 square feet of a building located at 2630 Highway 15 South, in the same industrial park. This expansion will include a new product line that will increase service capabilities to provide additional downstream manufacturing and fabrication for the company’s customers and end users. The expansion is expected to be complete in 2023.
“Jemison Metals is thrilled about our opportunity for business growth, further investment and creation of new jobs in Sumter, South Carolina. The hard work, dedication and support by Team Sumter during this process was a key factor in our decision to grow our operation in the community,” said Jemison Metals President & COO Craig Mathiason.
“Jemison Metals’ Sumter County expansion is yet another illustration of how committed we are to developing successful businesses and growing our economy. There’s something uniquely special about this community and it’s always great when our industries recognize this distinction as well,” said Sumter Economic Development Chair Greg Thompson.
“South Carolina businesses continue to excel, thanks to the dedication displayed by our world-class workforce. Jemison Metals’ additional investment in Sumter County is a testament to the reputation the community has built, and I look forward to seeing all this company will achieve in the years to come,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt noted.
