Company expands SC operations, adds 50 jobs

ABBEVILLE, S.C. -- A company that does screen printing and embroidery for promotional products is adding 50 new jobs at its facility in South Carolina's Abbeville County.

Pro Towels said Monday that it was investing $2.5 million in the effort. Company president Kevin Nord says the company needs to expand to meet increasing customer demand.

Pro Towels is moving to a new 300,000-square-foot Abbeville County location that will house offices, a warehouse and production facilities. The expansion is expected to be complete by the first quarter of next year.

Company officials say the expansion will triple the facility's current square footage.
