Textile Manufacturer, Industrial Waste Recycler Locating New Facilities in South Carolina

Triumph Apparel Corporation, a manufacturer and distributor of women's clothing, will open a logistics and distribution center in Sumter, South Carolina. The Item newspaper of Sumter reports that the company plans to create 30 new jobs with the project. New York-headquartered Triumph, which manufactures the Danskin brand of active wear and dance clothing, will move into an existing 67,000-square-foot facility. "We're excited about coming to Sumter, and we believe, based on our economic modeling, Sumter gives us the greatest opportunity to be successful," says Kevin Nesbit, Triumph's COO, quoted in The Item. "Sumter had everything we needed to get up and running quickly so we can better serve our clients and customers." Nesbit says the location's proximity to Charleston's ports and the local work force were key factors in the decision. In Harleyville, Global Recovery LLC, a recycler of industrial waste products, will locate a new plastics recycling facility, according to state commerce officials. At least 15 new jobs are expected. "We are pleased to further our operations in South Carolina with a new facility in Harleyville. The new facility will allow us to increase our productivity and expand our recycling and processing eforts," says John E. Beach, Global Recovery's president and CEO. "Dorchester County is an excellent fit for us, providing a positive business environment, strong labor force, and an existing building to suit our needs." The company plans to begin hiring in August.
