JW Aluminum Expands Manufacturing Plant in Goose Creek, South Carolina
Construction includes a new 220,000 square foot building and the installation of proven, state-of-the-art equipment utilizing green technology, ultimately resulting in 175 million pounds of new capacity. Construction is underway and is expected to be complete in early 2020.
As part of the expansion, JW Aluminum is adding 50 new jobs to its workforce and is currently recruiting skilled operators, industrial and electrical technicians, maintenance mechanics and engineers.
According to company officials, there will be no interruption to current Mount Holly production during the construction period. The project will greatly enhance JW Aluminum’s capabilities to serve its primary end markets.
“This expansion has been years in the making and its undertaking would not be possible without the team’s depth of experience, a highly engaged workforce, local and national government support and our stakeholders’ commitment to our industry,” said Stan Brant, COO.
“It’s an exciting new chapter in JW Aluminum’s story and a considerable progression in our strategic journey. As a domestic supplier, we’ve prevailed in an extremely challenging competitive environment. The outcome of this endeavor will empower us to produce superior product for our customers, provide increased value to our stakeholders and serve as a preferred supplier and employer for decades to come,” said Lee McCarter, CEO.
