AGRU America, a manufacturer of engineering plastics solutions, plans to expand its operations in Andrews, South Carolina. The $7.8 million project will create approximately six jobs.

The investment includes new machinery and equipment at the company’s existing facility on 3537 County Line Road.

“AGRU America has been in South Carolina since 1996. Since then, we’ve expanded multiple times across Williamsburg, Georgetown and Charleston counties. South Carolina has provided us with an excellent business environment for nearly three decades, and we are thrilled by the ongoing support we have received from state and local officials. Our latest expansion will help ensure we continue meeting the demand for our products and solutions,” AGRU America President and CEO Robert L. Johnson explained.

AGRU America is a subsidiary of AGRU Kunststofftechnik GmbH. The company’s solutions include AGRU geosynthetics, concrete protective liners, pipes and fittings, and semi-finished products.

“We are excited to see AGRU America again growing its operations in one of our state’s rural communities. Announcements like this prove that South Carolina is a place where innovative manufacturing companies can find lasting success,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.
