Crane Co., a diversified manufacturing company, will invest
approximately $20 million to consolidate vending machine operations at
its plant in Williston, South Carolina, according to state economic
development officials. The move will bring an estimated 1,000 new jobs
to the area over the next five years. In Laurens County, South
Carolina, Force V Environmental LLC will invest $2.5 million to locate
a new window and door production facility in the city of Clinton. The
new factory will create nearly 200 new jobs. The company will move into
an existing vacant facility and is expected to open next month. "Force
V is excited to be moving to South Carolina, which is the center of its
market," says Richard Porosky, a company principal. "The warm welcome
and friendly reception of the state, city, and residents of Clinton was
a factor in us locating in this community." Officials did not release
information about financial incentives for either project.
