“Expanding our manufacturing operations to York County will enhance Schuff Steel’s fabrication capabilities and capacity in the eastern region of the United States,” said DBM Global Chief Executive Officer Rustin Roach. “York County and the S.C.

We expect to be an active employer in Rock Hill and look forward to becoming part of the community.”

We congratulate Schuff Steel, and welcome them to York County.”
