Canada-Based TIVA Building Products Plans Blackville, South Carolina, Operations

TIVA Building Products Corp., a polyvinyl chloride decking company, plans to establish operations in Blackville, South Carolina. The $8.3 million project is expected to create 122 new jobs in Barnwell County.

Located at 44 Bradley Drive, the company will manufacture PVC decking and other building materials using the extrusion process. The facility will expand existing manufacturing capabilities and will be able to accommodate future demands as the TIVA Building Products Corp. brand continues to grow in North America. Operations are expected to be online in August 2022.

“We are excited to establish a manufacturing facility in Blackville, Barnwell County. We look forward to creating jobs and building long-lasting relationships with the local community. We intend to use this facility as the launchpad for our expansion and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Thank you to South Carolina and Barnwell County for this warm welcome, and we can’t wait to get started,” said TIVA Building Products Corp. CEO and Founder Terry Fangrad.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $250,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Barnwell County to assist with the costs of site preparation and building improvements.

“We couldn’t be more excited that TIVA Building Products Corp. has chosen to locate its newest manufacturing facility in Barnwell County. The 122 new jobs they are creating will make a real difference in the lives of South Carolinians, and we look forward to watching the newest member of our state's business family grow and thrive in Barnwell County for many years to come,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III added.

Headquartered in Canada, TIVA Building Products Corp. manufactures leading PVC decking and dock boards using adaptive security appliances (ASA) technology. The company’s TIVADEK, TIVADOK and TIVACOAT product lines offer quality performance for outdoor spaces.

“TIVA Building Products Corp. will be an asset to our regional industrial community. We are especially excited about the 122 jobs they are creating in rural Barnwell County, and we are pleased that our communities have the right business climate and workforce to support this growing sector of building product industries,” SouthernCarolina Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls said.
