US Roto Molding, a manufacturer of plastic molding products headquartered in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, has established operations in Hampton County.
The company recently purchased the former Dixie Poly Drum facility at 28 Dixie Poly Drive in Yemassee. Their initial investment of $500,000 has created five jobs in Hampton County with plans for further expansion as their market penetration grows.
“US Roto Molding is thrilled to be operating in Hampton County at the former Dixie Poly Drum site,” said US Roto Molding plant manager Dennis Johnson. “The area provides an excellent strategic location to grow our business. We look forward to serving our current and future customers.”
The company specializes in a variety of plastic moldings. Its product line includes drums, step stools, building protection and material handling. Custom molding is also available.
According to Johnson, the company will be meeting with many of Dixie Poly Drum’s former customers in the coming months and introducing other products at the site in Yemassee.
“We are happy that US Roto Molding has invested in Hampton County,” said County Council Chairman Shedron Williams. “We hope the company will be a viable entity in the county and we look forward to working with them through the county council to support job creation and investment.”
“US Roto Molding will be a great addition to our industrial community in the region,” said Hampton County EDC Chairman Bill Hager. “Every job created by the company affects a family in our community, and we value their investment in our people.”
According to Brantley Strickland, project manager for SouthernCarolina Alliance, the regional development organization representing Hampton County, “Dennis and his team can rely on us to assist them as they establish manufacturing operations and seek to grow their company. We welcome them to Hampton County.”
