New Operation to Create Jobs in Yemassee

U.S. Ironworks Company today announced that the company will locate a metal recycling operation in Yemassee, South Carolina, creating 5 direct jobs on the 7-acre site.

“Hampton County provided an excellent location for our operation, with access to ports and rail,” said Thomas J. Fanell, President and CEO of U.S. Ironworks Company.  “The community has been welcoming and helpful at the local, county and regional levels, and we are pleased to get our operations underway in Yemassee.”

“It's rewarding to see the partnerships between the county and our municipalities facilitate new growth,” said Hampton County Council Chairman Clay Bishop.  “This new project for Yemassee is a great example of that. This is a win- win for everyone.”

“Hampton County welcomes Mr. Fanell and the U.S. Ironworks team,” said Hampton County Economic Development Commission Chairman Bill Hager.  “This company will be an asset to our industrial community, and we are proud to welcome a business that is recycling material, creating a ‘greener’ world for production of new products.”

"On behalf of the mayor & town council, we'd like to extend a warm welcome to U.S. Ironworks on selecting Yemassee as a base for their operation,” said Yemassee Mayor Colin Moore. “Yemassee is an attractive location for business and industry, complete with rail access, Interstate access, and just 40 minutes from the Savannah & Charleston ports."

“We appreciate the investment that Mr. Tom Fanell and U.S. Ironworks are making in our region,” added SouthernCarolina Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls.  “Every job created in Hampton County affects the future of a family, and we look forward to working with the company for years to come.”
