The South Carolina Department of Commerce and Kershaw County announced that TB Kawashima USA Inc. will expand its facility in Kershaw County. The $9 million investment is expected to generate 50 new jobs over the next five years.

“We are pleased to move forward with our new expansion at our plant in Kershaw County. This represents the second expansion to this plant in the last couple of years. Demand for our products has continued to grow, and Kershaw County has provided us with an excellent business environment in which to operate. We appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials,” said Yuzo Mori, president of TB Kawashima USA.

TB Kawashima USA, a leading producer of fabric for the automotive industry, will expand its operations at its existing facility in Lugoff. The expanded operations at the facility are expected to come online in the fourth quarter of this year.

“TB Kawashima's expansion is another reminder that South Carolina's automotive sector continues to present opportunities. TB Kawashima's decision to increase its footprint in Kershaw County is also a sign that our state's business-friendly climate, skilled workforce and exceptional market access are working to attract new investment and jobs. By continuing to keep regulatory costs and taxes low, South Carolina is well positioned to compete nationally and globally for new investments and growth among existing industries,” said Joe Taylor, Secretary of Commerce.

“Kershaw County is pleased to have worked with TB Kawashima on the expansion of their Lugoff facility. In light of these interesting economic times, having a company create new jobs is especially welcome. Since locating here in 2003, TB Kawashima has been a strong asset to our manufacturing community, and we look forward to working with them in the future as their growth continues,” stated Max Ford, chairman of Kershaw County Council.

ReadySC will assist Kawashima in providing a personalized training program for the new hires. The company will begin hiring for the positions in the fourth quarter of this year.

TB Kawashima USA is a leading provider of textiles used by the automotive industry for car interiors. The company's fabrics are used in cars produced by Honda, Nissan, Toyota and GM.
