Williamsburg County, South Carolina – AGRU America, a leading provider of engineering plastics solutions based in the U.S., announced its plans to expand its operations in Williamsburg County. This expansion involves an investment of $7.8 million by the company, which is anticipated to generate around six new employment opportunities.

“AGRU America has been in South Carolina since 1996. Since then, we’ve expanded multiple times across Williamsburg, Georgetown and Charleston counties. South Carolina has provided us with an excellent business environment for nearly three decades, and we are thrilled by the ongoing support we have received from state and local officials. Our latest expansion will help ensure we continue meeting the demand for our products and solutions,” said AGRU America President and CEO Robert L. Johnson in a release.
