Worthington Industries Engineered Cabs, a market leader in the design and manufacturing of high-quality, custom-engineered operator cabs for industrial mobile equipment, will invest $2.5 million to expand its manufacturing operations in Florence County, South Carolina, for the second time in two years.
The company will expand its metal fabrication facility located in the Pee Dee Commerce City Park. Worthington Industries Engineered Cabs currently employs approximately 300 people at the facility. Its investment will result in the addition of 40 additional employees to its workforce.
