Xerxes, a subsidiary of material sciences company Shawcor Ltd., plans to establish operations in Blythewood, South Carolina. The project is expected to create 80 jobs in Richland County.

Located at 141 Hobart Road, the company will lease a new production facility that will expand its capability to deliver market-leading underground fuel and water storage tanks. Operations are scheduled for the end of 2024.

“Our new Xerxes facility will bring 80 jobs to Blythewood while positioning us closer to our U.S. customer base and expanding our ability to serve the eastern-U.S. market with underground storage tanks,” said Shawcor Ltd. Composite Systems segment President Martin Perez.

Shawcor Ltd. is a growth-oriented, global material sciences company serving the infrastructure, energy and transportation markets. The company operates through a network of fixed and mobile manufacturing and service facilities.

“This announcement is exciting news for Blythewood, and we are proud to welcome Xerxes to South Carolina. Our state’s substantial resources will help Xerxes build a solid foundation for success and, in turn, continue to elevate economic opportunities in Richland County and beyond,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III added.

Xerxes manufactures market-leading, fiberglass-reinforced plastic underground storage tanks, primarily used within the retail fuel, storm water and wastewater markets.
