Builders FirstSource Plans Yemassee, South Carolina, Production Center

Builders FirstSource, a leading supplier of structural building products, will establish a $16 million operations complex at Point South Park in Yemassee, South Carolina. The project is expected to create 126 jobs over the next five years in Jasper County.

The new location will allow the company to expand its offerings and production capacity. Additionally, this site will complement its 23 current locations throughout South Carolina, including its Cherry Point Yard in Ridgeland. Operations are expected to be online in the fourth quarter of 2022.

“We are excited for the opportunity to expand our footprint in South Carolina. Builders FirstSource is invested in building communities, and our growth in South Carolina not only benefits the people of Jasper County, but our business as well. We look forward to a continued successful partnership with Jasper County,” Builders FirstSource Division President Steve Herron said.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council also approved a $750,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Jasper County to assist with related project costs.

“Manufacturing continues to be a catalyst for investment and jobs across all areas of South Carolina. Builders FirstSource’s new operations in Jasper County are a testament to the business-friendly environment Team S.C. continues to cultivate, “ Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III added.

Established in 1988, Builders FirstSource specializes in value-added components and services to the professional market for new residential construction, repair and remodeling. The company offers integrated solutions to shorten construction times, reduce costs, increase build quality, improve safety and reduce waste.

“SouthernCarolina Alliance congratulates Jasper County and Builders FirstSource on bringing good jobs to our area. Every job created affects the future of a local family, so we are excited to share in the good news of 126 new jobs in Yemassee.
