Tree Brand Packaging Locates Operations Center in Holly Hill, South Carolina

Tree Brand Packaging, Inc., a manufacturer of wood pallets, skids and specialty crating, is launching its new operations in Holly Hill, South Carolina. The company will make a capital investment of $1.3 million and is projected to create 28 new jobs in eastern Orangeburg County.

Tree Brand Packaging is a family-owned manufacturer and custom services provider operating in the southeastern U.S. Providing a variety of custom pallets, skids, crates, and packaging.

“Being closer to our customers in South Carolina is an important part of our strategic growth. In addition to customers, South Carolina offers a healthy and robust forest sector that is an important part of our growth strategy. We are excited to be manufacturing in South Carolina, a great place to live and work,” Tree Brand Packaging President Chris Helms said.

“South Carolina continues to see its manufacturing and forestry sectors grow and create jobs. Tree Brand Packaging’s new investment builds on our state’s success in those sectors and strengthens our global reputation. I congratulate Orangeburg County on this tremendous news, and we look forward to what the future has in store for this community,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.

“Tree Brand Packaging’s expansion into the Palmetto State reflects its confidence in our state’s healthy, abundant and resilient forest resource. The company is joining a very strong network of more than 700 secondary forest product manufacturers in South Carolina, each one strengthening the supply chain that supports our state’s $20 billion forest products industry,” said South Carolina State Forester Scott Phillips.

“We extend a warm welcome to Tree Brand Packaging as the company announces its first South Carolina facility. This location in Orangeburg County will help strengthen the wood and paper packaging manufacturing industry locally, and supply the ever-increasing demand for shipping supplies for manufacturers and distributors,” Central S.C. Alliance Chairman Mike Brenan explained.
