CLIO, SC (WBTW) – Arris Manufacturing has chosen to locate its operations in Marlboro County, bringing 130 new jobs to the area, according to a post on the Marlboro County Government Facebook page.
County officials made the announcement Thursday about the $11.9 million investment coming to the former Baldor site in Clio.
Arris Manufacturing makes modular homes and modular panels for the residential building industry and plans to begin improvements on the Baldor building off of Highway 9 in January.
Marlboro County Council and County Administrator Ron Munnerlyn gave final approval to infrastructure credits for the project last week, according to the Facebook page.
“Today’s announcement is proof positive of Marlboro County government’s commitment to recruiting new jobs and capital investment for our community. Most importantly, it is evidence of the pro-business environment of our county and the quality of our workforce,” said Marlboro County Council Chair Dr. Carolyn Prince.
“We are beyond excited by Arris’ announcement. It is great news for Marlboro County and the Town of Clio,” said County Administrator Ron Munnerlyn. “We expect great things for Arris and look forward to working with the company as they ramp up operations in the coming year.”
Details for those interested in applying for jobs are expected to be released sometime soon.
