Boise Cascade Company Expands Its Chester, South Carolina, Manufacturing Plant
The company is investing $23.5 million in the facility, creating 52 new jobs in Chester County. Boise Cascade has already begun installing new equipment and expanding the warehouse. As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Chester County to assist with the costs of real property improvements.
"This $23.5 million investment shows the confidence that the company has in our more than 350 employees in South Carolina and represents a sound investment in the future of this facility and of this company. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen,” said Boise Cascade Company Southeastern Area Manager Chris Seymour.
“We have so many great corporate citizens, like Boise Cascade, that are the driving force behind our economic development momentum, because they prove to the world that there is no better place to be doing business each time they decide to expand in our state. We look forward to seeing the positive impact that this new $23.5 million investment, and the 52 new jobs it will create, will have in Chester County,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
