Healthcare US Co., Ltd., a venture of China-based Healthcare Co., Ltd., will establish new operations in Winnsboro, SC. The memory-foam mattress manufacturer’s $45 million investment is projected to create 250 new jobs in Fairfield County.
“We’re happy to be establishing this new facility in Fairfield County, and we are very appreciative of the ongoing support from both the local and state governments,” said Healthcare Co., Ltd. President James Ni. “This is a milestone for our company, and we are excited to support the community we will soon be calling home.”
Founded in Jiangsu, China in 2003, Healthcare Co., Ltd. is the first publicly-traded, memory-foam mattress manufacturer in China and is now that country’s largest such manufacturer. The company has also established production operations in both Serbia and Spain, with approximately 3,600 workers worldwide.
Healthcare US Co., Ltd. is expected to launch the new, 650,000-square-foot Winnsboro, SC facility in the first quarter of 2019. The operation will specialize in the production of memory-foam mattresses for a variety of customers.
“South Carolina has been attracting business from all over the world for years because we have worked hard to create a business friendly climate and a workforce that is second to none,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. We’re thrilled that Healthcare US Co., Ltd. has chosen to join the ranks of international companies that call our state home and look forward to many years of success.”
The South Carolina Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $300,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Fairfield County to assist with the costs of building renovations.
“South Carolina’s ongoing economic success can be attributed, in part, to our manufacturing prowess and ability to recruit foreign direct investment,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “This $45 million investment in Fairfield County only reinforces that notion. We look forward to this new partnership with Healthcare US Co., Ltd.”
“We are excited to welcome Healthcare US Co., Ltd. to Fairfield County and the I-77 Alliance region,” said South Carolina I-77 Alliance President and CEO Rich Fletcher. “Healthcare US Co., Ltd.’s commitment to Fairfield County is a testament to the strong manufacturing workforce in the county and the support of county government and community leaders. Fairfield County’s proximity to Charlotte Douglas International Airport and the numerous amenities of the Charlotte and Columbia metro areas continue to make it an extremely attractive community for foreign and domestic investment.”
