GCL manufacturing capability by May
GSE Lining Technology, manufacturer of geosynthetic lining products, is expanding its current operations in South Carolina. The Houston-based company said it is investing $5 million for new manufacturing capabilities in Williamsburg County in rural, eastern South Carolina.
GSE’s facility in Kingstree, S.C., currently produces geotextile fabric and synthetic drainage products used in waste management and precious metals mining, and in a range of civil engineering applications. With this expansion, GSE Lining will now also be able to manufacture its complete line of geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) products there. The company said it is targeting a May completion for the expansion.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to increase our footprint in Williamsburg County,” said Don Bohac, GSE’s director of manufacturing. “South Carolina has been a great fit for our facility, providing us with a business-friendly climate and skilled talent. We appreciate the support we’ve received from state and local officials,” Bohac said.
“We are truly proud that GSE Lining Technology is expanding in Williamsburg County,” said state Sen. John Yancey McGill. “They are wonderful corporate and environmental neighbors and partners, and their announcement of this expansion and the new jobs that come with it is certainly news to celebrate.”
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a rural infrastructure grant worth $350,000 for the county to help with a rail spur to the new facility.
GSE said it will begin hiring new positions immediately.
