Expert Machine & Fabrication Plans $2.6 Million Expansion Of Latta, South Carolina, Manufacturing Center
Founded in 1999, the family-owned Expert Machine & Fabrication manufactures products primarily for the housing industry. The company also serves the military, manufacturing and electrical industries. To meet increased customer demand from these industries, Expert Machine & Fabrication has decided to relocate to a new, larger facility in Latta, South Carolina.
The firm’s new, 21,000-square-foot facility, located at 109 Academy Street in Latta, is nearly triple the size of Expert Machine & Fabrication’s existing site, allowing the company the opportunity to upgrade its existing equipment and add new equipment to its operations. The addition of 25 new employees over the next five years will more than triple its workforce to 36.
“Dillon County is quickly becoming a place where businesses grow and people prosper. We are very happy to be a part of the growing Latta community and providing more jobs for its citizens,” said Expert Machine & Fabrication Owners Teddie and Elizabeth Williams.
As an incentive, the Rural Infrastructure Authority has approved a $75,000 grant to Dillon County to assist with the cost of real property improvements.
“It’s exciting to see a local, family-owned company, like Expert Machine & Fabrication, grow after doing business in South Carolina for 15 successful years. The company’s decision to invest and create new jobs in Dillon County is a reason to celebrate in the local community, and we look forward to watching them continue to succeed here moving forward,” Governor Nikki Haley noted.
