Lockhart Power Co. said it is donating $100,000 to Union County to support the arrival of the Gonvauto South Carolina steel service center at the Union County Commerce Industrial Park.

The facility, which is being built by Gonvarri Steel Service and is the company’s first steel service center in the U.S., will be located on 24 acres along U.S. Highway 18 near the Gestamp LLC automotive parts manufacturing facility.

“We are thrilled to support the arrival of a company whose facility will have a ripple effect within our community,” Lockhart COO Bryan Stone said in a news release. “Not only will Gonvauto bring jobs and tax revenue to Union County, but it will show others who are interested in locating facilities here that we will do everything within our power to support their arrival.”

Earlier this year, Lockhart Power made a similar donation to fund infrastructure improvements to the Midway Green Industrial Park.

Lockhart is a division of Pacolet Milliken Enterprises Inc.
