A tissue company will locate its new facility in Barnwell County. South Carolina Tissue LLC announced Tuesday that it will open a tissue plant in Barnwell County in 2012. The company will invest $140 million on the plant and plans to hire 200 workers over the next five years.
The company recycles paper into bulk rolls and sells it to other companies where it can be converted into tissue paper for use in consumer products, such as toilet paper, napkins and paper towels. This news comes close on the heels of the announced expansion of Kronotex USA and the $45 million capital investment and 40 jobs associated with it.
The company will start construction early next year and plans to start hiring workers toward the end of the year.
