Today was a great day in the office and for Beaufort County! As you know, our office serves as Beaufort County’s economic development office and we have been recruiting Project Eagle to Beaufort County over the past 13 months.

Geismar, a manufacturer and distributor of railway maintenance equipment, is launching its new operations in Beaufort County. The development is expected to bring $2.9 million of new capital investment and lead to the creation of 50 new jobs.

Located at 134 Parker Drive in Beaufort, S.C., Geismar North America will be constructing specialty rail cars and new railway maintenance equipment. Hiring for the new positions is projected to begin in the second quarter of 2017, and interested applicants should contact USJobs@geismar.com.

We are so proud to be a business-friendly county that is attracting internationally successful manufacturing companies. While a $2.9 million investment that creates at least 50 new, good-paying jobs is enough to celebrate, we’re proud that Geismar will also establish North American Headquarters right here in Beaufort and we look forward to working with their team for many years to come.

REMINDER: If you live in School District 3, be sure to get out and VOTE today! Polls close tonight at 7:00 p.m.

All The Best,

Blakely Williams
