A newly established firm in home textiles, 3i Products, is establishing operations in America's Lancaster County in South Carolina with an investment of $3 million. The investment is expected to create 100 new jobs in Lancaster over the next five years.

According to a South Carolina Department of Commerce press release, 3i Products, which specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of indoor and outdoor cushions and pillows has acquired an existing 27,000-square-foot building, in Lancaster to house its new operations. The facility is expected to be fully operational by the second quarter of 2016, and hiring for the 100 new positions is expected to begin in April 2016.

“South Carolina's positive business climate and excellent workforce continues to attract businesses of all types to our borders. This includes newly-established firms, like 3i Products, Inc., which has chosen Lancaster County for its new facility, bringing 100 new jobs to the local community,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $150,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Lancaster County to assist with the cost of real property improvements related to the project. Additionally, Advance SC committed a $50,000 grant to Lancaster County to assist with building up fit in support of the project. (SH)
