Longleaf Packaging Plans Holly Hill, South Carolina, Manufacturing Complex
Longleaf Packaging will analyze and produce dry mix products for professional trade and retail end users. Manufacturing materials such as mortar mix, concrete mix and more, the company will also produce specialty items, including non-shrink grout and colored mortar mixes.
Located at 621 Good Farm Road in Holly Hill, Longleaf Packaging’s new, 18,700-square-foot facility is expected to come online in the fourth quarter of 2018 and will package and distribute bagged, pre-blended, dry mix products. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Orangeburg County to assist with the costs of site preparation and infrastructure improvements.
“With its abundant natural resources and well-established workforce, Orangeburg County has proven to be a great fit for our first packaging facility. We are excited to be in one of the fastest-growing areas in the nation and look forward to an exciting future,” said Longleaf Packaging President Ray Love.
“Today, we welcome Longleaf Packaging to the impressive roster of manufacturing companies that have decided to call our state home. This new plant and the 28 jobs it will create will have a significant impact on Orangeburg County, and I look forward to watching it thrive there,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
“From cars to planes and everything in-between, it’s been proven that in South Carolina, we make things and make them well. Congratulations to Longleaf Packaging, and we look forward to watching our world-class workforce succeed in producing quality products in Orangeburg County,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
“Welcome Longleaf Packaging to South Carolina’s Global Logistics Triangle. We’re grateful that you selected Interstate 95 and the Holly Hill/Santee area for your first central South Carolina facility. The workforce and location will pay dividends to you and your customers with the ability to access such a strong growth market of the southeast. It’s indeed a great day in Orangeburg County thanks to Longleaf Packaging,” said Orangeburg County Council Chairman Johnnie Wright Sr.
“We extend a warm welcome to Longleaf Packaging, LLC and congratulate the company on the launch of its first Midlands-area facility. Longleaf Packaging’s selection of Orangeburg County for a dry mix packaging plant puts it in an ideal location to meet the needs of purchasers from around the state,” said Mike Brennan, Chairman of Central S.C. Alliance.
