SouthWood Establishes Rock Hill, South Carolina, Operations Center
The new facility is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2021 and will allow the company to expand capacity, push innovation and further modernize operations.
“When we began the process of identifying our future home, we took a look at where our teammates live, where we would have access to skilled tradespeople and where we could get the space that we need to continue thriving in our industry. When SouthWood’s new facility opens early next year, we will look to magnify a working environment that fosters collaboration and provides synergy between our front-of-house operations and our manufacturing team. The goal is to continue to cultivate one of the top workplaces in the area,” SouthWood Corporation President and CEO John Petrone said.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.
“When a company like SouthWood decides to locate in South Carolina, it’s a sign that the Palmetto State is ‘Just right’ for businesses of all types. This company’s investment will create jobs that will have an impact in York County and beyond,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.
