JN Fibers Inc., a Zhejiang, China-based manufacturer of recycled polyester staple fiber products, is establishing a new manufacturing facility in Chester County in the US state of South Carolina, the state’s department of commerce said in a press release.
 
To be set up with US$ 45 million investment, the new plant will recycle discarded soda and water bottles and transform them into recycled polyester staple fibers for use in home textiles, furniture, upholstery and automotive industries.
 
The JN Fibers plant is expected to begin operations in the third quarter of 2014 and hiring for the new positions would begin in the second quarter of 2014. Around 318 new jobs are likely to be created at the plant.
 
“We are pleased by the opportunity to establish new operations in Chester County. South Carolina is the perfect fit for our business’ needs. With an excellent business environment and access to markets, as well as top-notch workforce talent, we look forward to getting our operations in Richburg up and running,” said Mark Bachner, senior vice president of operations for JN Fibers Inc.
 
“We celebrate JN Fibers’ decision to invest US$45 million and create 318 new jobs in Richburg. This announcement shows that South Carolina has done the right things to be competitive on the global stage,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
 
JN Fibers Inc. will operate the factory and market its products under its subsidiary Sun Fibers LLC.
