Hong Kong Candy Maker Au'some Selects Sumter, South Carolina, for Production Plant

Au'some, a candy maker based in Hong Kong, is investing $6 million in a new production plant in Sumter, South Carolina. The company will create 120 jobs as part of the expansion.

"We are pleased to be moving forward with our new manufacturing facility in Sumter County. This facility will allow us to better serve our customers throughout North America. Sumter County provided us with an existing building to suit our needs and South Carolina provides us with an excellent business environment and a talented workforce. This is a big step for our company and we look forward to bringing this facility online," said David Tsu, CEO of Au'some.

The facility will be Au'some's first in North America. The company already supplies candy to major retailers such as Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and CVS. The company will begin hiring in late 2011.
