South Carolina Tissue Investing $140M in Snelling, South Carolina
"We have spent over a year working diligently with the state of South Carolina to find a location for our new plant. In the search for our location, we were seeking a business-friendly environment with a talented work force and logistic superiority; we have found that in Barnwell County. We sincerely appreciate all of the support we have received from both the state and local governments, specifically Bob Marriott, Danny Black, and Marty Martin, without whom this plant would not be a reality," said Marc Gilson, senior vice president of development for SCT.
SCT will build the facility to LEED Gold standards. It will use post-consumer recycling processes for its production of tissue papers. It expects the plant, which will make tissues, paper towels, and napkins, to open by early 2012.
