A manufacturer has announced today (Thursday) plans to locate a facility in Beaufort County that will bring over 300 jobs to the Lowcountry.
A leading provider of dual fuel conversion systems for heavy-duty, Class 8 trucks, EcoDual Inc., announced today its plan to locate its new manufacturing facility in Beaufort County. The more than $13 million investment is expected to generate 307 new jobs over the next five years.
EcoDual develops proprietary dual fuel conversion systems that enable diesel trucks to operate on up to 60 percent natural gas, allowing truck fleet owners to reduce operating costs by utilizing the cleaner, U.S.-produced natural gas as a transportation fuel. The company is currently located in a temporary facility at 9 Pin Drop Lane in Beaufort. EcoDual will build a permanent facility in the Beaufort Commerce Park within the next 18 months.
