The Shanghai based firm Labon, specializing in technical fiber and textile manufacturer has invested $3.1 million to set up its first U.S. facility in Orangeburg County which is expected to begin operations in January, according to the South Carolina Department of Commerce.
The decision to set up 15,700-square-foot facility in the Orangeburg county was easy for them due to skilled workforce and friendly business climate. They will be hiring in 23 new jobs immediately.
Labon General Manager Hongxin Chen said that Labon is excited to launch their first operations in the United States in Orangeburg County. This development will allow them not only to accommodate their continued business growth, but better serve their customers as well.
