A manufacturer of structural wood component systems is establishing its first South Carolina operation in Anderson County. The $4.7 million investment will create 60 new jobs, according to the Department of Commerce.
Carolina Structural Systems is a family-owned business that supplies fabricated wood components and engineered wood products for single and multi-family homes, as well as light commercial projects, a Commerce Department news release said. The company opened its first facility in Star, N.C., in 2016.
“We are proud of our growth and expansion and particularly proud to have decided to make this expansion in the Upstate,” Carolina Structural Systems General Manager David Green said in the release. “The stable construction industry and healthy workforce have us very excited to be part of this beautiful area. Everyone in South Carolina, and specifically Anderson, has made this decision easy for us.”
The company said the location was chosen to better serve the Upstate and Atlanta markets.
“I am so excited to see new investment, new jobs and better opportunities coming to this part of Anderson County,” County Council District Two Councilman Glenn Davis said in the release. “I have no doubt that Carolina Structural Systems will find that our workforce goes above and beyond the call of duty and will be proud partners in making this investment a tremendous success.”
The company purchased and is expanding a 30,000-square-foot building at 909 Amity Road in Anderson. Operations will be online by the end of this year, the release stated.p
