Huber Engineered Woods has announced plans to establish operations in Dillon County, South Carolina. The company’s $30 million investment is projected to create 30 new jobs in the area.

Huber‘s new 109,200-square-foot facility will treat paper materials used in ZIP System sheathing, which features a patented, integrated paper overlay that provides a water-resistant barrier. The Dillon facility will also supply a critical component of the ZIP System panel manufacturing process. In addition to featuring the latest paper treatment technology, operations will implement the highest levels of safety standards, environmental protection measures for pollution abatement and sustainability, the company says.

“Huber Engineered Woods LLC would like to thank the South Carolina Department of Commerce for welcoming this facility into the community. We look forward to being a key partner in the future success of the county and the state, and are pleased to bring new employment opportunities to Dillon County and the surrounding areas. Environmental health and safety are core tenets to business practice at Huber. Our commitment to respect for people is paramount at our five engineered wood manufacturing sites, our R&D facility and our Charlotte, N.C., headquarters, and it will be in our new Dillon, S.C. location as well,” said HEW Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Strategy Kirk Blanchette in a press release.

The new facility is projected to be open and operating by late 2020. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded Dillon County a $400,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to assist with the costs of site preparation and building construction.
