Nutramax Laboratories has announced a $30 million plan to expand operations in Lancaster County, S.C.
In 2010, the company conducted a multi-state site search and moved its animal health business and corporate operations to Lancaster County and, since that time, has been actively engaged in the Lancaster community, providing support to local schools and churches, area law enforcement and fire services, numerous small businesses and many local charitable organizations. Nutramax Laboratories operates facilities in both South Carolina and Maryland and continues to be an industry leader in setting and adhering to high standards in research, manufacturing and quality control.
“We are pleased to continue to grow in Lancaster County. With this newest expansion to the Indian Land area, we will continue providing a positive impact that goes beyond our economic development commitments,” said Todd Henderson, company president and CEO. “For 30 years, we have been blessed with a fantastic team of employees committed to delivering the very best to our consumers.”
The new facility will be located at 785 Fort Mill Highway in Indian Land and will be used for warehousing, distribution and to expand manufacturing capabilities.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project and awarded a $500,000 Set-Aside grant to Lancaster County to assist with costs.
“When leading companies like Nutramax Laboratories find long-term success in our state, it shows the world that we have the business-friendly environment and skilled workforce in place where companies can grow. Congratulations to Nutramax Laboratories on this latest expansion in Lancaster County, and we look forward to their continued success in South Carolina,” said Gov. Henry McMaster.
