Fabric Producer Lava USA Inc. Locates Production in York, South Carolina

Lava USA Inc., a maker of knitted fabrics for mattress covers, has selected York, South Carolina, as the site of a 100,000-square-foot production facility. The company will invest more than $3.8 million and create at least 30 jobs in the coming five years.

"We are pleased to have our new plant up and running and look forward to adding more production capacity over the next few years. York County had an excellent building available that suited our needs and provides us with ample space to grow. South Carolina also has the positive business environment and strong work force we need to continue expanding our operations. We appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials," said Robert Jones, plant manager for Lava USA Inc.

The facility is located in a space formerly occupied by Sattler Plastics. Operations have already begun, but Lava plans to acquire additional machinery over the next few years.
