Thrace-LINQ expanding Dorchester County operations
Thrace-LINQ, a global supplier of fabrics for the textile industry, is expanding its Dorchester County operations with an investment of $ nine million which is expected to create at least 10 new jobs. Thrace-LINQ manufactures nonwoven fabrics used in a variety of textile applications, including geosynthetics, automotive, construction and floor covering.

With its North American headquarters, manufacturing and distribution centre in Summerville, Thrace-LINQ is a member of the Thrace Group of Athens, Greece. Thrace-LINQ will begin the installation of a state-of-the-art production line in early 2018. Hiring for the new positions should begin in the second quarter of 2018.

“This new production line is one of a series of planned investments for our growing company here in South Carolina. The Thrace Group continues to invest in people and technology, and we are excited about the future of Thrace-LINQ,” Thrace Group COO and Thrace-LINQ chairman of the Board George Braimis, said.

“The people of Thrace-LINQ have worked hard to make this investment become a reality. We look forward to this important milestone in our strategic plan with great anticipation,” Thrace-LINQ general manager Brian Sparks, said.

“Our workforce has shown that it’s the best in the world, and announcements like this one continue to boost South Carolina’s reputation on the global stage as a state that can get any job done. We’ve worked hard to create a competitive, pro-business environment, and our efforts continue to pay off,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“South Carolina is proudly leading the manufacturing renaissance, and Thrace-LINQ’s expansion is yet another win for the thriving manufacturing industry in our state. This new investment strengthens the reputation that the Palmetto State and its highly-skilled workers have earned for making quality products,” secretary of commerce Bobby Hitt added. (SV)
