The Largest Initial Investment in Marion County History

Nov. 18, 2013

Gov. Nikki Haley joined officials from Miami-based Essex Holdings Inc., a global resources company, today in announcing the company’s plans to establish a new facility in Marion County. The $54.4 million investment is expected to generate 215 new jobs.

“We are excited about the opportunity to establish our new manufacturing facility in Marion County. This new facility will increase our operational capacity and hence represents an important step for our company’s growth. South Carolina has a great business environment, and we strongly believe that this integration will be a bona fide step to further give added value to our food division’s operations. We look forward to starting our operations there and appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials,” said Dr. Navin Xavier, president and CEO for Essex Holdings.

Essex Holdings will establish a new manufacturing facility, which will support the expansion of the company’s food division. The new facility is expected to be completed and operational by the middle of this year.
