KBRS To Locate New Manufacturing Facility In Jasper County, South Carolina
Build-out of the 60,000 square-foot facility, located at 8406 Speedway Boulevard in Hardeeville, will be completed in the coming months, and KBRS will begin hiring associates in November 2014.
For nearly a decade, KBRS has been constructing and distributing custom shower solutions for homeowners, professionals and major hotels, such as Marriott, Hilton and Holiday Inn. As part of this expansion, the company will also relocate its headquarters to South Carolina.
“We are excited to move to Jasper County, and we love the area. The economic development team and the community were extremely helpful in assisting us in locating in Hardeeville. I have never worked with such a responsive and professional group in completing a project. They made the transition seamless,” said Tommy Davis, President/CEO of KBRS.
“KBRS’ decision to locate its new facility in Hardeeville is another win for one of our state’s rural counties. We celebrate the company’s $2.6 million investment in Jasper County and the creation of 30 new jobs. We remain committed to strengthening our state’s business climate and bringing job-creating investments to all areas of South Carolina,” Governor Nikki Haley explained.
“The leaders in Jasper County worked with the company and the South Carolina Department of Commerce to create the best possible conditions for this project, and we are delighted that KBRS, Inc. has chosen to locate here. We welcome the job creation and investment into our community and look forward to working with them,” said Phil Richardson, SouthernCarolina Alliance Project Manager.
