Sea Pac LLC, an Upstate-based startup company that plans to transport plastic pellets to overseas manufacturers, is investing $32 million to build a large export operation off U.S. Highway 78.
The Greenville company expects to create 50 jobs initially and more than 200 in the next five years, Gov. Nikki Haley’s office said Monday.
Established in 2014 by Upstate entrepreneur Jon McClure, Sea Pac plans to build a 1.5 million-square-foot export center on 107 acres of undeveloped land in Charleston County, next to the former Force Protection plant. The company said it chose the site because it is served by a Norfolk Southern rail line and is close to the Port of Charleston.
