A manufacturer of poultry farming equipment has announced plans to expand its operations in Bamberg County.
Innovative Poultry Products LLC will invest $2.86 million on a new facility, an expansion expected to create 30 new jobs over the next five years, according to a news release.
Founded in 2015, the company specializes in creating equipment to help farmers work more efficiently, including fast, effective methods that help them get their poultry to market faster.
The company plans to build a new facility, including offices, to manufacture machines for the poultry industry. The new facility will be located alongside the company’s current operations at 2192 Juniper Creek Road in Olar and will allow workers to produce equipment in-house that previously has been outsourced.
“We are looking forward to bringing this new plant online here in Bamberg County,” said Chad Brubaker, president of Innovative Poultry Products LLC. “It is a special opportunity to be able to build a state-of-the-art agricultural manufacturing facility in one of the most rural areas of South Carolina. We look forward to continuing to serve our country’s farming communities from our own local community.”
The expansion is expected to be complete by February 2024.
“This expansion shows that South Carolina offers a great business environment for agribusinesses to prosper and grow,” said South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers. “We’re proud of the way Innovative Poultry Products serves farmers in South Carolina and beyond and look forward to supporting them. “
