Duke Sandwich Productions announced on Tuesday April 17th plans to invest $5 million to create a new production facility in Powdersville, South Carolina which is in Anderson County and located near the town of Anderson. The company is no doubt considering using poster printing and flyer printing to make jobseekers aware of the 45 new openings that will be generated by the new facility over the next five years.
According to Andrew Smart, the CEO of Duke Sandwich Productions, which makes a variety of dips, sandwich spreads, dressings and dessert items, the company has a long history in South Carolina and looks forward to growing and doing business in the state.
The former Rock Tenn building will be acquired by the company for the new facility, which is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter this year. The facility will be making a range of sandwich and other spreads at the facility.
Governor Nikki Haley applauded the announcement made by Duke Sandwich Productions. The Governor confirmed the company’s long-established business in the state and celebrates the 45 new jobs that will be created in the state.
Secretary of Commerce, Bobby Hitt, pointed out that Duke Sandwich productions has been in South Carolina for close to 100 years and that this announcement of the new facility helps to grow the manufacturing, agriculture, forestry and agribusiness sectors in the state.
This new facility adds to the $4.7 billion that was invested in South Carolina in 2011 that was able to generate 13,000 new jobs in the manufacturing sector. Duke Sandwich productions will begin hiring for the new jobs in September.
