Safeplast NA Company, a manufacturer and provider of hose protectors and hose binding products, is establishing a new facility in Pickens County, SC. The $4.3 million investment is expected to create 30 new jobs.
“For the past year, Safeplast NA has explored various geographic locations to build a new facility, searching both in Canada and the United States,” said a company statement from Jerry Pawluk, Safeplast NA Company, Ltd. President and Diana Pawluk, Vice President of Sales and Customer Relations. “Thanks to the expert developmental planning of Alliance Pickens and the warm personal reception from the South Carolina community, it became clear that Pickens County Commerce Park was the perfect choice for the future growth of Safeplast. Safeplast now has a tremendous platform for our continued growth while cultivating new business relationships and opportunities.”
Safeplast’s new facility in Pickens County Commerce Park will function as the company’s North American headquarters.
“Safeplast NA Company’s decision to invest in Pickens County and create 30 new jobs serves as an opportunity for South Carolinians to show the world how special of a place our state is, and we are confident they will do just that,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “We know that this is just the beginning of an important and lasting relationship between Safeplast NA Company and our state.”
“South Carolina is known for its remarkable manufacturing ability,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “Today’s announcement by Safeplast NA Company is further proof that this reputation is well-earned, as yet another tremendous company has chosen to call our state home.”
Affiliated with Safeplast Finland, Safeplast NA began manufacturing and distributing its signature Safeplast Spirals in 2007. Designed to protect hydraulic hoses from abrasion that can lead to premature equipment failure, the company’s state-of-the-art products are generated through a unique manufacturing process with technology only available in two places worldwide – Finland and the new facility in Pickens County, SC.
