Thrace-LINQ Expands Summerville, South Carolina, Manufacturing Plant

Thrace-LINQ, a global supplier of fabrics for the textile industry and member of the Greece-based Thrace Group, will invest $9 million to expand its operations center in Dorchester County, South Carolina.

Located at 2550 West Fifth North Street in Summerville, the company will be adding a new production line and upgrading existing equipment. Thrace-LINQ manufactures nonwoven fabrics used in a variety of textile applications, including geosynthetics, automotive, construction and floor covering.

“This new production line is one of a series of planned investments for our growing company here in South Carolina. The Thrace Group continues to invest in people and technology, and we are excited about the future of Thrace-LINQ,” Thrace Group COO and Thrace-LINQ Chairman of the Board George Braimis said.

“The people of Thrace-LINQ have worked hard to make this investment become a reality. We look forward to this important milestone in our strategic plan with great anticipation,” said Thrace-LINQ General Manager Brian Sparks.

“Our workforce has shown that it’s the best in the world, and announcements like this one continue to boost South Carolina’s reputation on the global stage as a state that can get any job done. We’ve worked hard to create a competitive, pro-business environment, and our efforts continue to pay off,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

“South Carolina is proudly leading the manufacturing renaissance, and Thrace-LINQ’s expansion is yet another win for the thriving manufacturing industry in our state. This new investment strengthens the reputation that the Palmetto State and its highly-skilled workers have earned for making quality products,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
