MPW Industrial Services is investing $10 million on the construction of an industrial water regeneration plant in Georgetown County. MPW’s investment is expected to create 32 new jobs in Andrews, S.C.
The company’s regeneration facilities serve clients within a 500-mile radius and provide a variety of industrial cleaning, water purification, facility management and environmental management services.
Jared Black, MPW Industrial Water Division General Manager, said the new plant will enable the company to meet the needs of a growing customer base throughout the Southeast.
“In addition to being business friendly, Georgetown is a great location because we can easily reach clients from Florida to Alabama, all of whom depend on us for prompt and timely service,” he said.
To house its new regeneration operations, MPW has purchased an existing building constructed and owned by the county and will refit it to suit their needs.
Johnny Morant, Georgetown County Council Chairman, said the jobs created by MPW will have a lasting impact and greatly benefit the community and the Andrews area.
“We are committed to working with and attracting businesses that provide more opportunities for Georgetown County residents, and we consider MPW’s decision a great success,” he said.
Construction on the facility is expected to begin this fall, and hiring is anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2016.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $200,000 Set Aside grant to assist Georgetown County with the costs of real property improvements related to the project.
