Trison Wells, a consumer products manufacturer, plans to establish operations in Colleton County. The company’s $1.2 million investment will create 35 new jobs, according to the S.C. Commerce Department.
Trison Wells is a full-service contract manufacturing company that specializes in liquid filling for household, personal and beauty care products, according to a news release.
“We are proud to provide high-quality and agile services that help foster manufacturing in the USA,” Trison Wells General Manager Jonathan Johnson said in the release. “We have invested and will continue to invest in people and technology to build strong capabilities in South Carolina. We are grateful for the warm welcome we have received from Colleton County and the state of South Carolina and look forward to developing a fruitful partnership with the community.”
Located at 1756 Industrial Road in Walterboro, Trison Wells’ Colleton County facility will expand the company’s manufacturing operations and accommodate growth to meet increasing demand, the release said.
Operations are expected to start first week of June.
“Colleton County welcomes Trison Wells and we appreciate the 35 jobs and capital investment made at their facility in Walterboro,” Colleton County Council Chairman Steve Murdaugh said in the release. “Every good job created provides a brighter opportunity for a family in our area, and Colleton County will continue to offer a pro-business environment to encourage and support businesses like Trison Wells in our county.”
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Colleton County to assist with the costs of building improvements.
