Mohawk Announces Expansion Of Marlboro County Facility

The South Carolina Department of Commerce, Marlboro County and the North Eastern Strategic Alliance (NESA) announced Thursday that Mohawk Industries Inc. will expand its manufacturing facility in Marlboro County.
The $60 million investment is expected to generate a significant number of additional positions over the next two years.
“We have been very pleased with the results of the Oak River North Extrusion and Yarn operations,” said Larry Perugini, Vice President – Yarn and Extrusion Manufacturing, Mohawk Industries.
“The people at the facility have been key contributors to our company’s success, and we are grateful for their good work and dedication.”
Perugini added that the site continues to play a significant role in Mohawk’s manufacturing.
“As Mohawk’s needs for fiber and yarn evolve with changes in consumer demand, we have to analyze our assets and invest at locations that can help us fulfill our customer’s preferences,” Perugini said.
Mohawk Industries opened the current Bennettsville facility in 2006, but has had yarn manufacturing operations in the area for more than 50 years.
The company will add 87,500 square feet of manufacturing space to the facility, along with additional yarn conversion equipment.
Mohawk previously expanded Oak River North facility in 2008 and currently employs more than 400 individuals at the location.
