Economic development professionals and attorneys with the Business Investment & Incentives Group at Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP and Parker Poe Consulting are helping the Turkish company, Mogul, establish its first North American operation in Laurens County, according to a release issued by the company.
The company is purchasing a 91,000-square-foot facility at 100 ISO Poly Parkway in the Town of Gray Court with plans to invest $17.6 million and create 38 new jobs when the plant is fully operational in the second quarter of 2016.
Mogul is an innovative leader in the new wave of advanced materials production worldwide, said Sam Moses, a Partner with Parker Poe and Co-Chair of the firm’s Business Incentives & Investment Group.
We’re excited they’re bringing that vision here to the Southeast U.S.,” he said. “We join with Mogul in thanking all the private and public sector economic development allies in the State of South Carolina for making this European investment become a reality.”
Mogul is based in Gaziantep, Turkey, and is a global leader in the production of nonwovens, including the spunlace and spunbond products like BICO PET Spunbond nonwovens. The products will be produced under the Buffalo brand at its new Upstate South Carolina facility and used for medical, hygienic and personal wet-wipes applications.
“We’re thrilled to be here,” said Ekrem Kayali, Mogul founder and Chairman.
“This expansion will allow us to better serve our North American customers,” he said. “We plan to expand our capacities there to include more of our diverse product portfolio, including spunbond and meltblown nonwovens as well as coated and laminated fabrics.”
